When military pilots and astronauts in training had to understand the theory of gyroscoping, this large dimensional model was used in the classroom. Each ring spins independently of the next, so multiple motions are achieved at once. The model plugs in, and builds up an intense speed. We would recommend plugging into a "dimmer" extension to slow it down, if used. As a sculptural display object, it is incredible. The paint is beautiful, and the original U.S. Property label is still attached.
