Training wheel for kids won’t tip over

This remarkable training wheel has a gyroscope inside that keeps a bike from tipping over. The idea is to use the wheel on a tricycle or a larger bike to teach kids how to ride, without the training wheels that just make the process more difficult (and delay actual learning). The inside wheel spins and as the rider turns the gyroscope keeps the bike straight, even at slow speeds.
