Caption: Animation of a gyroscope revolving on a mount. A gyroscope is a heavy spinning disc mounted so that its axis is free to adopt any orientation. Its special properties depend on the principle of conservation of angular momentum. It will stay upright as long as it is spinning fast enough, demonstrating the properties of gyroscopic inertia. If it slows too much, it will fall.
