Genio is a project proposing an innovative approach to the ideas of the Renaissance by using different media: a videogame, toys, 3D models.

In the Genio project we will create:

- a card based videogame playable by all that explores the innovative ideas of the Renaissance

- 3D printable models of da Vinci machines and also produce (for the first time) toys designed by Leonardo himself.

This project is on Kickstarter now here: http://kck.st/1mrK4mX

The project creators are Alexander Neuwahl and Pietro Polsinelli.

Putting together Alexander researches and previous works with museums, and Pietro's programming and game design experience, we propose a wholly original project that includes a new game play idea and original research in da Vinci notes.
