South-pointing chariots

研究成果: Chapter

摘要

Many ancient Chinese legends refer to the mysterious invention of the south-pointing carriage. It was a chariot on which was mounted a figure with an outstretched arm that continuously pointed south no matter which way the chariot turned. This device is called the south-pointing chariot and is found in literary records but without surviving hardware. However, various reconstructions of its designs have existed in past years.
