did you know a gyroscope can do THIS?
This ambitious and clever home inventor makes a precision gyroscope in his maker space. Many home enthusiasts and science fans know a gyroscope exhibits magical properties in that it seems to float when it spins. You can see these effects all over the world. Here is his intro to this awesome demo video:
I show you how to finish off the remaining parts, and then put it all together for a run. One of the interesting aspects about this gyroscope design, is the way it uses a simple cone bearing to support the rotation of the flywheel. This may come as a surprise to many, given that we live in a world dominated by the standard roller bearing.
How cool is this? You might be surprised by what you see.
And note: DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME OR WITHOUT THE SUPERVISION OF A PROFESSIONAL
