500-YEAR-OLD VISIONS: LEONARDO ONLINE

Who designed the first helicopter? The first armored fighting vehicle? The first water skis? Of course you knew the answer: Leonardo DaVinci. But these are just a few of his amazingly futuristic ideas. Now, you can see Leonardo's 500-year-old creations come to life on a computer with Leonardo, The Inventor.

The $50 CD-ROM from InterActive Publishing Corp. in Spring Valley, N.Y., runs on both multimedia IBM-compatible PCs and Apple Macintosh computers. The disk contains more than 20 reproductions of the artist's inventions. Narration and digital animation explain each invention in detail, showing how his designs would work if they were built. The CD also includes a bibliography and timeline of his inventions and artistic works.EDITED BY PAUL M. ENG
