A gyroscope is a device for maintaining orientation. They are used in missiles, compasses, airplanes, satellites, space shuttles and boats. You can now add golf clubs to the list. The Gyro Swing from SKLZ is a golf club that incorporates a 20,000 RPM gyroscope, literally keeping your swing in a perfect line.

Implications - Golf's popularity has exploded in recent years, but not every golfer is ready to enlist the services of a professional trainer. Golf gadgets and accessories that help players work on their swings are not new to the market, but product designers are increasingly integrating futuristic features such as gyroscopes into these devices to win over a more tech-savvy market.
