Image Number 2 for United States Patent #6458008.
A remote control device that utilizes a variable velocity gyroscope for stabilization as well as directional control. The gyroscope is mounted within a device shell and aligned vertically. When the device is stationary or traveling in a straight line, the rotational velocity of the gyroscope is constant. The direction of the moving device can be controlled by accelerating or decelerating the gyroscope.
