The Royal Collection's iPad app Leonardo da Vinci: Anatomy enables users to appreciate fully the astonishing accuracy of Leonardo’s work for the first time. The app includes interactive 3D anatomical models, pinch-zoom functionality and interviews with experts on Leonardo’s work and the history of medicine. It even allows users to reverse and translate the thousands of notes made by the artist in his distinctive mirror-writing, direct from the pages of his notebooks. Leonardo da Vinci: Anatomy has been produced by the Royal Collection in partnership with iPad app publishers Touch Press and leading healthcare publisher Primal Pictures.
The app includes all of Leonardo’s anatomical drawings – 268 pages in total. Over 11 chapters the app tells the story of the greatest challenge Leonardo faced in his career as he embarked upon a campaign of dissection in hospitals and medical schools to investigate the bones, muscles, vessels and organs.

We believe that Leonardo would have been fascinated by modern medical imaging and would have embraced the way in which this app brings his drawings to life.
The app includes the following features:
