    They could take a few lessons from Elio, Rick. Even though a lot of info is fluff at least they are making regular contact with us.

    These guys http://www.tiltingmotorworks.com are the best example of rider-induced lean, like any biker would do. THE issue is how to get a linear...

    The wobble I believe was a natural result of the gimbals (which control the lean) relating to the constant speed spin of the gyros (cmg). The...

    What the gyroscopes *should* have done is to counter the initial push, bring the vehicle back upright, possibly make one swing in the opposite...

    No, it was stopped by an outside force. The oscillation was stable. That stability must have been imparted by the gyroscopes. The alternative to the...

    The wobble in the video was 'controlled' by an OUTSIDE force (ie. a person STOPPING it)!

    The wobble in the video looked intentional. It looked like the system was keeping the momentum stable, rather than dampening it out quickly. It did...

    Steer by wire and the constant motion gyros may be the ticket to determining the lean angles. The speed of the gyro is apparently constant.
