In search of kickstarter funding, $ 249 bike uses gyroscopic precession to balance itself.
A child may tremble as he tries to balance the first time he rides a bicycle, but if he is on top of a Jyrobike, you can not tell. It may not be able to pronounce “gyroscopic precession,” but that is what keeps it balanced.
The mechanism that holds the bike upright is a rotating disc inside the front wheel that offers a slow moving bike the same stability it would have if it were riding at a faster speed.
This is called gyroscopic force, a bit of physics based on the principle that a moving wheel gains more stability as speed increases. The first awkward attempts of the apprentice are compensated by the generation of a gravitational counterforce. The process, called “gyroscopic precession,” is unique to the Jyrobike bicycle.
The concept of the seemingly magic bike was developed in 2005 at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth University in the American state of New Hampshire. Jyrobike founder and CEO Robert Bodil says the process of getting cycling apprentices to stop using gyroscopic precession assistance to walk alone can be accomplished in just one day.
The stability of the bicycle can be graded, which allows cyclists to gradually reduce the dependence of the pendulum that generates the gyroscopic precession force.
Parents and supervisors can change the bike’s stability at any time through a wireless remote control.
Bodil expects its product to open doors for disabled children, who are seen as unsuitable for cycling.
On her Kickstarter page , Bodil shows the video of an 8-year-old girl who has dyspraxia and appears learning to walk on the Jyrobike successfully.
Currently, the Jyrobike is available in two sizes, one version with 30.48 cm, aimed at children between 3 and 5 years, and one with 40.64 cm, for those between 5 and 8 years.An adult version is being developed and should be released next year.
The company expects to raise $ 100,000 by July 3. The product is available for pre-order, due in January 2015.
