He studied the the world around him and drew the things he saw. He read everything he could find, listened lo other people's ideas, and made notes of the things he learned. Some of his notebooks were as large as wall posters, and others were small enough to carry in his pocket. Many have been lost, but some of them were published in the 1800s and can be seen today. Although he was full of new ideas, Leonardo didn't build many of his inventions'". One of his notebooks includes a drawing of a person with a parachute""". Only 300 years later, in 1783, a Frenchman became the first person who made and used a parachute. Leonardo did lots of drawings of arms and legs and other parts of the body and he designed a mechanical man — a robot!
