Of all the zany car technologies I’ve read about a gyro car isn’t one of them.  From what my simple man-brain can discern, the Gyro-X, revealed to the world at the 1961 Detroit Auto Show, is a two-wheeled car that keeps its equilibrium via a gyroscope within its body.  More importantly, it was one of the last great projects of car-design genius Alex Tremulis – a man whose amazing body of work spanned Jetson-esque creations to the Subaru BRAT. The man was nothing short of amazing. Watch his Gyro-X in action and learn more about Tremulis’ work here.
