It’s a sad fact that most of us know common scientific knowledge such as Isaac Newton discovering gravity and the fact that the Earth revolves around the Sun (well… sort of), but the large majority of us will never test these laws of physics for ourselves. This boredom busting toy is not only fun to play with but highlights the principle of angular momentum.

This fun toy comes from the Scientific Curiosities range from the Science Museum and it displays how different forces cause amazing reactions. The Precision Gyroscope 2.0 can be started easily with a piece of string to set the middle spinning. When the middle section is in motion this boredom buster can perform great tricks.

With the middle going this gyroscope can balance upright on a table, the tip of your finger or even a piece of string! If you place the base of the gyroscope on the included pedestal it will defy gravity and spin horizontally in a circle through the air. As well as being a fun novelty toy for adults this toy is also fantastic for children learning about forces in the national curriculum for science in Stage 2.

This would be a brilliant novelty for anyone that finds themselves getting bored and would also be a great gift for younger adults and children who want to learn about forces.
