Leonardo di Vinci's 500-year-old design that may have revolutionized the way bridges are built never left his sketchpad – until now.

MIT researchers have used the power of 3D printing to successfully create a replica of the overpass that was rejected for being too radical for its time.

The mini version was found to remain stable and strong without the use of any mortars or fasteners, which is how the Renaissance man had envisioned it.

Bridges were already old news in the east ...

The Anji Bridge (simplified Chinese: 安济桥; traditional Chinese: 安濟橋; pinyin: Ānjì Qiáo; literally: 'Safe crossing bridge') is the world's oldest open-spandrel segmental arch bridge of stone construction.[1] Credited to the design of a craftsman named Li Chun, the bridge was constructed in the years 595-605[2] during the Sui dynasty (581–618). Located in the southern part of Hebei Province, it is the oldest standing bridge in China.
