The gyroscope’s mysterious force seems to defy gravity. 
Gyroscope technology is used in numerous applications today, including satellite navigation, 
flight stabilization in helicopters and stabilizing features in rockets, missiles, and planes.

The amazing device, invented in the 1700’s is a “super” top, with advanced spinning abilities.
The gyroscope is like a spinning top but with longer spin, a support framework and endless trick options.
