  1. I new it was a gyroscope like device before it read it above the picture.

    I have an old one that was given to me by Santa way back, it is almost antique.

    Motorcycle wheels act like gyroscopes too, they try to keep pointed in the direction they came from.
    I found that out the day a muffler popped up from under a car I was following at about 80 mph.
    The bike kept straight ahead!

    I’d like to have a device like that one. Nice picture.
    Happy WW!

  2. i was thinking gyroscope, too, but wasn’t too sure until i read Jim’s comment (I didn’t read the shot’s title, hahaha).
    cool!

    happy WW

  3. I had a gyroscope when I was a kid, loved it…it wasn’t htis big though, nice shot…could be something the Borg left for Jean Luc Picard…

  4. Interesting! MY daughter recently did something to do with gyroscopes for school – to be honest it was the first time I ever heard of them!!

  5. Because some people asked… I took this picture with my Samsung Blackjack Cell phone, following a friend’s tenet that the best camera for the job is the one you have with you.

    It’s a navigational gyroscope from a dirigible (airship), and I snapped the picture at the Frontiers of Flight museum at Dallas’s Love Field on Saturday.
