What are the 6 simple machines?
The first ever drawing machine was created in 1725 by the French mathematician, Jacques de Vaucanson. It was a mechanical duck that could move its wings, flap its beak, and swallow grains of corn. The first steam powered drawing machine was created in 1872 by the British engineer, Henry Heath. It was capable of drawing circles, ellipses, and other shapes. In the late 1800s, the French mathematician, Émile-Gaston Picard, created a steam-powered drawing machine that could generate shapes like polygons and spirals.
