Discover the astonishing power of gyroscopes with the fabulous, award-winning Gyrobot. Build amazing gyroscopic machines including a robot that can balance on two wheels and move along a tightrope – yes, it really does work! Find out how gyroscopes are used in the real world, in smartphones, tablets, aeroplanes and space telescopes.
A gyroscope is a rapidly spinning wheel. Because it is spinning, it resists forces in certain directions so can be used in all sorts of devices related to balance, rotation and orientation.
Gyrobot uses a motor-driven gyroscope to help you complete any one of 7 exciting projects, including a gyrocompass, a flight simulator and a tightrope walker.
Gyrobot will help you learn about the scientific principles that keep the robot balanced, making it appear to defy gravity. A full-colour, 24-page, illustrated experiment manual provides step-by-step instructions and scientific explanations.
