Based on University gyroscopes from the 19th century the 'lecture' gyroscope adds modern technologies that were not available at the time. This gyroscope is superior to anything else on the market. A rubber starter wheel is connected to a small electric drill (sold separately) to get the gyroscope up to speed (7,000 rpm+). Leaving you to do experiments with the high speed spinning gyroscope that spins effortlessly for over 20 minutes.
