science behind gyroscope:

a gyroscope is a device for measuring or maintaining orientation, based on the principles of angular momentum. mechanically, a gyroscope is a spinning wheel or disc in which the axle is free to assume any orientation. although this orientation does not remain fixed, it changes in response to an external torque much less and in a different direction than it would with the large angular momentum associated with the disc's high rate of spin and moment of inertia. the device's orientation remains nearly fixed, regardless of the mounting platform's motion, because mounting the device in a gimbal minimizes external torque.

applications of gyroscopes include inertial navigation systems where magnetic compasses would not work (as in the hubble telescope) or would not be precise enough (as in icbms), or for the stabilization of flying vehicles like radio-controlled helicopters or unmanned aerial vehicles. due to their precision, gyroscopes are also used in gyrotheodolites to maintain direction in tunnel mining.

design principle:

for over 70 years, tedco toys company of indianapolis, indiana, usa has produced and sold gyroscopes all over the world. please note that this gyroscope is handmade, hand inspected and imported from usa to ensure optimum performance & usage. the design of this gyroscope has an intentional break on the outer ring, which will enable the flexibility of the frame and this design has not changed since its production in 1917. adjustments are necessary over time to keep the gyroscope in perfect working order.
