I never thought I would see the day when the basic concept of learning how to ride a bike could be improved. Then along comes technology and utterly blows my thought process away.
In this case, it is the Gyrowheel. This is a front bicycle wheel that has a battery powered spinning disc inside that creates gyroscopic precession force that can balance the wheel like it was on a Segway. Check it out in the video.
So what are we looking at, a new way to teach children to ride a bike? Yeah, say goodbye to training wheels, and hello to charging this guy to making it work. Just to let you know, little Junior isn’t going to fall off when the battery on this guy runs out.
In fact, if given enough time, the wheel itself will simply fall over. Fortunately, a child will be prepared for the fall before that happens.
