Amazing spinning top!! It dances! It spins! It balances! Produced since 1917, the gyroscope has been a classic educational toy for generations and continues to fascinate young and old alike with its mysterious force that seems to defy gravity. This is an excellent tool to teach gyroscopic inertia. Each gyroscope is packed in a blister pack with starting string, pedestal and instructions for several amazing tricks. Made in USA.

Features Includes:

  • This original TEDCO Gyroscope is packed in a blister pack.
  • Your gyroscope comes with starting string, pedestal and instructions.

Science behind Gyroscope:

gyroscope is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, based on the principles of angular momentum. Mechanically, a gyroscope is a spinning wheel or disc in which the axle is free to assume any orientation. Although this orientation does not remain fixed, it changes in response to an external torque much less and in a different direction than it would with the large angular momentum associated with the disc's high rate of spin and moment of inertia. The device's orientation remains nearly fixed, regardless of the mounting platform's motion, because mounting the device in a gimbal minimizes external torque.

Applications of gyroscopes include inertial navigation systems where magnetic compasses would not work (as in the Hubble telescope) or would not be precise enough (as in ICBMs), or for the stabilization of flying vehicles like radio-controlled helicopters or unmanned aerial vehicles. Due to their precision, gyroscopes are also used in gyro theodolites to maintain direction in tunnel mining
