Gyroscopic Training Wheel teaches kids to ride their bike

When a kid has training wheels for longer than their friends, they always get teased a bit.  Well with this new Gyrowheel, it wouldn’t be quite so noticeable that the child is getting a little help.  Instead of them needing an adult to attempt to gradually let them go, they could learn to ride more confidently on their own with the use of a gyroscope.

The gyroscope on the inside will make it easier for new riders to stay upright.  Then the more confident the child gets, the more you can adjust the level of stabilization.  Eventually they’ll be able to ride all on their own without  ever using training wheels or someone holding onto them.  These go on the front wheel of a standard kids bike that uses a 12 inch tire.  That version will be coming out this coming December.  At some point there will also be a 16 inch version for adults as well, but as of now there’s only a kids one on the way.

I am wondering what advantage this would be on an adult bike?
