You can still see the Leonardo Museum's unforgettable 101 Inventions That Changed the World exhibit, which features everything from the alphabet to the locomotive, before it ends on Sunday, Sept. 15.
Grande Exhibitions gathered a panel of experts from around the world to collaborate on a list of 101 inventions that have changed the way we go about our lives or have shaped the earth into what it is today.
After displaying an overall timeline, the demonstration shows each invention individually. Viewers can see the year the invention was created and who or what civilization invented it. The story will also walk you through the reasons behind each invention and their effects on the world today.
The display is shown with SENSORY4, a system that utilizes 40 different projectors, displaying high definition video and graphics, along with encapsulating sounds tying the audience to the display. Interactive touch screens are also placed throughout the exhibit, allowing museum-goers to browse through the inventions on a more personal level as well as completing quizzes and puzzles.
Tickets can be purchased online at theleonardo.org or at the door.
