Post:

In the hope of making our bicycle wheel/rotating chair exhibit more
practical, I have also been seeking a motorized gimbaled gyro wheel (albeit
larger than the one at JHU). Gimbaled so that small kids could interact with
the exhibit even though they can't hold the wheel out at arm's length,
motorized so that a single individual can experience it although there is no
friend there to spin the wheel.
