QAR 350.00

Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s Robot Knight (built around 1495), these all-wood automaton kits will amaze your friends just as The Florentine’s device amazed kings and queens some 5 centuries ago.

Difficulty:  

TECHNOLOGY : Many consider da Vinci’s robots to be the oldest examples of an early proto-computer because they contained hardware, the robot itself, and software, wooden cams, which were read-only and interchangeable. Leonardo called these wooded cams ‘petals’ as they reminded him of petals on a flower. A set of programming pedals for our Drawmaton stores 1 kilobit of pre-defined motion data.

HOW IT WORKS: Programmed by wood cams, the included set of disks will magically produce 8 different artistic sketches as if drawn by a master artist’s hand. Powered by hand crank so no batteries are required!

DRAW EIGHT SKETCHES: Each kit draws the same 8 sketches: Ladies Portrait, Man’s Portrait, Horse, Skull, Tulip, Dragon, Elephant and Swans.

INSPIRED BY DA VINCI: Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s Robot Knight (built around 1495), these all-wood automaton kits will amaze your friends just as The Florentine’s device amazed kings and queens some 5 centuries ago. Leonardo built what was considered to be history’s first robot. His Robot Knight could perform many actions including shaking hands, playing the drums and could even hug an amused guest. It was rumored that the robot had another special skill…it could draw a picture.
