Leonardo da Vinci’s inventions are not very well known by the general public, hopefully that will change with this article. He is very well known as being one of the greatest painters of all time. He has received virtually no recognition for many inventions that other people have subsequently been accredited for. So here are 9 greatest invetions by Leonardo Da Vinci.
#1. Ball bearing
Leonardo Da Vinci drew Ball bearing around the year 1500. Ball bearings can be found in your PC, Laptop,Cars,Airplanes, Electricity Generators, Bicycles and many many more besides. Without this invention the machines of industry would grind to a halt, the global electricity system would turn off and the water would stop flowing into our homes. But we would like to mention that Philip Vaughan invented the ball bearing in the year 1794 – 294 years after Leonardo’s design.
