Insect's Legs Have Mechanical Like Gears

Humans living in Alexandria, Greece around 300 B.C.E reportedly invented mechanical gears, which has led to developments like bicycles and cars. Researchers from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom have discovered the first instance of mechanical like gears that evolved naturally on insects called Issus coleoptratus.
