Electric motor spins the gyroscope effortless up to an impressive 12,000

Super Fast

The Quickstart electric motor spins the gyroscope effortless up to an impressive 12,000 revolutions per minute. The motor can be fastened to the gyroscope with two screws providing hours of continuous use or it can be used to briefly start it and quickly detach, allowing you to perform experiments for as long as 25 minutes (depends on experiments).

The electric motor makes it easy and quick to start gyroscope, with speeds you would struggle to achieve with string pull start. The motor has its own battery pack that requires 4 AA batteries. Batteries are not included.


Super gyroscope has a brass disk machined to microns precision, ensuring it is incredibly symmetrical

Super Smooth

If a spinning object is unbalanced it will vibrate. Just like a wheel on a car, it needs to be balanced to ensure smooth operation. The super gyroscope has a brass disk machined to microns precision, ensuring it is incredibly symmetrical. Despite the brass looking perfect on the surface, it is an alloy, made up of a number of metals.

These metals are not always evenly dispersed resulting in a very slight non-uniform weight distribution. To correct this, the disk is then computer balanced to an impressive 250th of a gram accuracy! Giving a highly balanced, super smooth feel, longer spin and quieter operation.


Japanese ultra-low friction stainless-steel ball bearings

Super Sustained

Carefully chosen miniature Japanese ultra-low friction stainless-steel ball bearings allow it to run smoothly and almost silently for anything up to 25 minutes, allowing you to perform the experiments and tricks you want to do without having to reattach the electric motor. They bearings will never need oiling over the life of the gyroscope.

Please note: Some of the common experiments and tricks remove quite a bit of energy from the gyroscope. This will reduce spin times and you can expect many experiments to last 7 minutes or less.


Super Modular

The modular design allows for numerous tricks and experiments including demonstrating gyroscopic precession and nutation. The gyroscope has seven M3 metric threads all around the gyroscope which you can screw in various attachments. The gyroscope comes with two ball ends and one slot end, along with 2 x 50 mm long stainless steel extension rods which can be screwed together to provide a 100mm extension.

There are a number optional add-on kits that dramatically expands the range of experiments turning into an ideal educational tool.


Ideal for

More than you might think…

Teaching Physics

We sell a lot of these gyroscopes to school, colleges and universities. They help teach a relatively complex subject in an interesting, entertaining and visual way. Precision and nutation can be demonstrated, along with numerous ‘tricks’ to really get the students minds working. A wonderful teaching aid.

Fun executive toy

As educational 'toy'

If you have never come across gyroscopes before then the tricks you can do with them seem impossible, gravity defying and mind blowing. Of course it is all explainable physics but that still doesn't take away the awe of some of the demonstrations. It is a great conversation piece too.

Tight rope balance

Tight rope balance

Screw the ‘slot end’ into the opposite side of the gyroscope that you connect the electric motor. Place the gyroscope onto a taut string or wire (note the slot in the bottom). The gyroscope with remain on the wire until it slows down. Be ready to catch it.

Dangle

Dangle

Screw one of the ball ends into the opposite side of the gyroscope that you connect the electric motor. Start the gyroscope spinning. Hold both ends of the string and put the ‘ball’ end into the loop of string. Raise the gyroscope. The gyroscope will roughly maintain its angle to the horizon. Prepare to catch the gyroscope when it slows down. You will notice that as the gyroscope disk slows down its rotations around the string (precessing) will speed up.

Add on Kits

Over the years we have expanded what the super gyroscope can do with a number of optional add-on kits. You decide what you want to do with your gyroscope.

We are working on a new add-on kit for our super gyroscope. It turns it into an Artificial horizon (otherwise known as an attitude indicator).

The Factory

Brightfusion Ltd has been making and reselling gyroscopes for over 20 years. Our super gyroscope inherits years of experience with various types of gyroscopes. We have a small team of highly skilled and dedicated engineers.

We reinvest modern CNC machinery, and in recent years invested heavy in balancing machines. Our first robot was purchase in 2019 to remove bottlenecks in production. We have strict quality control and testing procedures throughout production.
