Codex Atlanticus: fortresses, bastions and cannons
This application is a sample of the more extensive Da Vinci's Codex Revealed Plus (available on App Store!). It will show you how to navigate in high definition in Leonardo da Vinci's Codex Atlanticus with touch iPods, iPhones and iPads.
The Codex Atlanticus is preserved in Milan's Veneranda Biblioteca Ambrosiana. Its 1119 pages make it the largest collection of the thoughts and ideas that sprang from Leonardo's genius for more than forty years, practically the whole of his life as an artist and scientist.
This international application, in Italian and English, constitutes the very first collection of all the best military art drawings comprised in the Codex Atlanticus: 5 sheets illustrating the development of the architectonic and scientific thinking of the world's best known inventor on the subject of the art of fortification
Leonardo's well-known right-to-left handwriting is revealed thanks to the employment of an innovative virtual instrument specially devised for this application to provide a more easily read "mirror" version of the texts.
Leonardo's drawings are reconstructed virtually. The machines he imagined come alive in 3D models showing how the great genius thought they would operate.
This format (The Ultimate Codex Experience) enables one's journey to continue with other topics drawn from the pages of the Codex Atlanticus: Leonardo's letters and readings, his thoughts on politics, weapons, "war machines", and much besides.

-sheets from the Codex Atlanticus
