today i learned – sat 16th feb 2019

so, after two years, it finally happened πŸ™ˆ i forgot to post something πŸ˜… (i’m writing this on sunday) … this fact seems relevant πŸ™ƒ

#tdil about a mad forgotten invention called the ‘dynasphere’ 😳

as you can imagine, there have been a whole lot of inventions throughout history … meaning that some have inevitably been forgotten 😒

this beast was invented by a dude called dr.j a purves frse back in 1930 😊 and was inspired by sketches made by leo da vinci πŸ‘πŸ»

there were two prototypes made – a leccy one and a gasoline one. it featured a mad iron lattice and an interior on rails that stayed at the bottom of the sphere.

it could manage about 25/30mph but had rubbish steering … so the driver literally had to lean out of the side of the contraption to make it turn πŸ™ˆ

pretty cool, hey? 😏 well … it had a few issues πŸ™ˆ for starters, sometimes accelerating or braking hard would cause the driver compartment to fly around the circle πŸ˜‚

it was issues like the above and the lack of steering that eventually killed the invention … before going down however, an 8 seater was invented for beach use 😏

and that’s that! 😁 what a crazy time πŸ˜‚

laters! πŸ˜‰ #tdil
