I have always considered gyroscopes to be one of those "perfect" toys. They are fun to play with, incredibly educational, and totally mesmerizing.
There is something almost magical in the physics of the gyroscope.
Glen Turner at Gyroscope.com sent us this beauty. This gyroscope is an heirloom quality precision instrument.
In this "first look" review, we tried to give you a feel for the quality of this gyroscope, the various gimbal pieces, and the different possible configurations for gyroscopic explorations.
Come back in a few weeks and check out this review again. We should have videos of the different "experiments" by then.
Uh, no...you can't play with it. Get your own here.
Initial Impression- Excellent
Durability- at least 100 years!
Price- Save up for it ($100, $55)
