The Two-Wheeled Self-Balancing 1967 Gyro-X

The Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, Tennessee, has a fully-restored two-wheeled car: the 1967 Gyro-X prototype. This video is a demonstration of the vehicle's self-balancing gyroscopes that took place recently in Cernobbio, Italy. Despite the cool technology, the Gyro-X never went into production. Honestly, it seems like more trouble than it was worth.  (via Laughing Squid)

I want to see a real-life version of cartoon character Smokey Stover's jalopy.  Somebody must know how to make one by now.
