The last couple of hundred years is littered with some interesting spinning tops and gyroscopes. Every so often someone manages to get them to do something no one else has thought about.

This is such an example. It is a gyroscope but doesn’t take the form of normal gyroscope. It actually looks more like a spinning top. It does something I’ve not seen in other gyroscopes.

It has a number of unique features.

  • Can be started without string or a motor
  • When placed on its provide stand it elevates before descending
  • All visible parts made from Stainless steel

This advanced gyroscope uses no string or motor to start it spinning, simply allow the contact ball to contact a work surface while rolling it in either a straight line, or in a circular motion. Speeds of over 3500 RPM are easily achievable, and with practice the rotor can reach almost 10,000 RPM. The best part is that the gyro can be sped back up at anytime without any need to stop the rotor and attach a motor or string meaning that there needn’t be any break in play!

Machined from Solid stainless steel this gyroscope is incredibly high quality, and very heavy. That mass provides a substantial rotor that is purposefully designed to maximize the performance of the gyroscope. The discus form of this instrument allows many effects to be observed by simply placing the gyroscope on its side that would usually require gimbals.

The elegant stand, also machined from solid stainless steel uses three ball bearings to minimise friction with the precessing gyroscope. This leads to fascinating and unique motions being observed, where the precessing gyroscope will actually elevate over time, until fully vertical where most other gyroscopes simply slowly descend. Once vertical, the gyro is free to spin on the unique bearing arrangement. It is a striking reaction.

This gyroscope is also a beautifully crafted spinning top. You can expect long spin times sitting still, or the device can be tilted slightly, which will set it off on a circular path across any desk or work surface.

Due to the friction being applied, this product can damage or mark surfaces. We suggest starting on a solid surface that you are not concerned about damaging.
