How to Self Balance a Structure or Vehicle With a Gyroscope

Introduction: How to Self Balance a Structure or Vehicle With a Gyroscope

About: I am an American teaching English at Shangluo University, Shaanxi. I like making machines that do interesting but fairly useless things - I call them Quixotic Machines.

In this video I present some lessons learned about how to balance a structure or vehicle (such as a bicycle) with a mechanical Gyroscope. In it I show how I built a frame to hold a toy gyroscope so that the gyroscope will balance the frame and keep it from falling over.
