Ideas.. ideas.. Sometimes I get ideas and they may not always be great ideas, but I how can you know until you try it out? Recently, I was at Toys-R-Us and came across this GYRO BOWL Spill Resistant Kids Gyroscopic Bowl.
The plastic bowl has a 2 axis gimbal system that allows the bowl to stay upright.
With some velcro I decided to attach my GoPro 2 and see if this bowl could be used as a camera gimbal system!
There wasn’t much engineering involved with these first tests. I was just curious how the first tests might look.
After only a few tests, I could see that the gimbal system was working but the camera was still rocking. There was nothing to slow down the rocking movement.
I mounted the camera on the bottom of the bowl with velcro so I wouldn’t wreck the bowl. But I hope this idea could inspire you to go make something!

Thanks for watching!
