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.

Really well received by an 11 year old. Great construction and educational toy.

Opened on Christmas day and we discovered the motor did not work. Also the screws to open and insert the batteries were so tiny that it took a lot of effort to find an implement to do the job. Surely a specialist screwdriver should have been part of the kit. Overall I thought it was poor and will not risk purchasing from Brightminds again.
