Learning to ride a bike is filled with trials and tribulations for children, something that the Jyrobike has essentially done away with. The Jyrobike eliminates the fear of falling down by auto-correcting its balance as a child rides it. Tipping and wobbling occur naturally as children test their balance on a two-wheeler. Yet the Jyrobike uses gyroscopic precession to compensate, a technology most often used to keep helicopters and boats stable.

While kids may think its magic, the Jyrobike is steeped in science. Targeting the ages between three and eight, the Jyrobike is specifically useful for disabled children who can still learn to ride a bike, but simply takes longer at it. It boasts three settings.
