Self-propelling cart

Designs from Leonardo's Atlanticus Codex have been transformed into a working model now the steering mechanism is no longer confused for the propulsion system.

For more than a century, modern Leonardo scholars have grappled with page 812R of the Atlanticus Codex. Other pages contained astounding inventions, from a bicycle to a submarine. A variety of models were built, based on da Vinci's wooden cart, but no one was ever able to make them work, because of an error of interpretation.
