Just incase anyone did not twig, yesterday’s post about Leonardo’s Ipad was an April Fools joke, the fact the control mechanism was very like an Etch-a-sketch should have given it away. The touring exhibition Leonardo Da Vinci’s Workshop will be visiting Toyko this year after a successful year in the US.
Also the twitter comment about coal powered commuter trains to due to the prices of oil was also a spoof but the technology behind the idea is quite real with the picture coming from “The Ultimate Steam Page”
There weren’t too many other good engineering jokes yesterday (please comment if you found any) but this one from the Austrailian Ikea was quite nice
Thanks to iFixit for spotting that one.
