High tech gyroscope with 2 poseable action figures that can balance as it spins. No battery required.
Mega Gyro contains small parts, it is not suitable for children 3 years old.
Refrain playing on fragile surface, i.e, glass surface. The rotor is made of die-cast Zinc alloy, which is somewhat heavy. It might break the glass when the gyro tips from the perch.
When you stack two gyros (if you possess two sets) together, make sure the rotors are spinning in same direction. CW or CCW. Occasionally, you might find the gyro vibrates vigorously, especially when it spins without figures. You can place few sheets of paper underneath the perch to reduce the noise and vibration.
You can also rest the gyro on the alien figure should be fully extended, the joint of elbow should be positioned where upon forearm would not flip up.

PRINCIPLE OF GYRO:-
are very perplexing objects because they move in peculiar ways and even seem to
defying gravity. These special properties make advanced navigation system on
the space shuttle. A typical airplane uses about a dozen groscopes in
everything from its compass to its autopilot. The Russian Mir space station
used 11 gyroscopes to keep its orientation to the sun, and the Hubble Space
Telescope has a batch of navigational gros as well.
Gyroscopic effects are also central to things
like yo-yos and Frisbees!
This toy gyroscope can
perform interesting tricks. It can balance on a string or a finger; it can
resist motion about the spin axis in very odd ways; but the most interesting
effect is called precession. This is the gravity-defying part of a gyroscope.
USES OF GYROSCOPES:-
The effect of all this is
that, once you spin a gyroscope, it axle wants to keep pointing in the same
direction. If you mount the gyroscope on a set of gimbals so that it can
continue pointing in the same direction, it will. This is the basis of the
If you mount two
gyroscopes with their axles at right angles to one another on a platform, and
place the platform inside a set of gimbals, the platform will remain completely
rigid as the gimbals rotate in any way they please. This is this basis of
inertial navigation systems (INS).
In an INS, sensors on the
gimbals’ axles detect when the platform rotates. The INS uses those signals to
understand the vehicle’s rotations relative to the platform. If you add to the
platform a set of three sensitive accelerometers, you can tell exactly where
the vehicle is heading and how its motion is changing in all three directions.
With this information, an airplane’s autopilot can keep the plane on course,
and a rocket’s guidance system can insert the rocket into a desired orbit.
