elenco da vinci mechanical butterfly Elenco Da Vinci Mechanical Butterfly

The scientific genius of Leonardo da Vinci is brought to life in this easy to assemble snap-together plastic mechanical butterfly. Taken from the pages of da Vinci‚Äôs priceless and awe-inspiring notebooks, this model is easy to assemble and requires no special tools. Included manual is very educational and teach how these inventions have evolved into what they are today. In this mechanical butterfly, da Vinci shows how the butterfly can fly. The beating of the dragonfly‚Äôs four wings is particularly complex and Da Vinci was well aware of how difficult it would be to create this machine, he himself described it in great detail. It is not simply wings beating up and down, it‚Äôs a jointed motion. “Whilst beating down, the wings are ‚Äúflat” in order to push as much air as possible, whereas when they are raised, they are angled so they create less resistance.” Leonardo da Vinci himself advised where one can admire these incredible flying insects: To see four-winged flying, look near ditches and you will see dragonflies. It is extremely difficult to create a mechanical replica of the natural movement of an animal.
