Leonardo´s Lost Robots

Here is a short review of the new book by Mark Elling Rosheim, Leonardo's Lost Robots.
(From a Springer Press Release; Heidelberg, February 2006)

Rosheim reinterprets orinal DaVinci drawings to show the designs for mechanical automata.

"Using the rough sketches scattered throughout almost all of Leonardo's notebooks, the author has reconstructed Leonardo's programmable cart, which may have supported a Robot Lion, a Robot Knight, and a "digital," hydraulically powered automaton for striking a bell. Through a richly illustrated, lively narrative, Mark Rosheim explains how he reconstructed Leonardo's designs."
