The fascinating thing about a gearbox is that it can both add up and minimize drive forces. The Antikythera mechanism, an astronomical clock, is the ancient example of a planetary gear that functions as a summing gear. With the astronomical clock, from the time between the 70th and 60th centuries BC. BC, calendar relationships could be reflected. In contrast, the compass car, a mobile direction indicator, which was more than 2000 years older, worked with a subtraction gear. Nowadays it is impossible to imagine automobiles without the differential as a distribution and epicyclic gear transmission. Its inventor is none other than Leonardo da Vinci. The new UGEARS MINT model VARIOMATIC is an artful homage to these drive technologies.
