This precision instrument challenges the force of gravity to remain balanced in any position.
It is operated by the cord included in the pack, which can be wound around a central spindle with speed and care. Any tilting or rotation will be corrected by a gyroscope effect. Fascinated viewers will experience the very latest in gyroscopic technology. The perfect introduction to the phenomenon of gyroscopy!
This didactic precision instrument is suitable for all levels of age and understanding.
The term Gyroscope was coined by the French scientist Foucault in 1852. In addition to its functional use in aircraft and compasses, the gyroscope was introduced into consumer electronics when it was used in the Apple iPhone. Gyroscopes are now widely used in such devices.
