Electrical Experimenter (04:03) July 1916

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"The gyroscope completely stabilizes the Brennan mono-rail car and the two-wheeled automobile. The gyrscope greatly reduces the rolling of ships on the ocean; it gives almost perfect safety to the aeroplane, and further, it stabilizes and guides submarine and automobile torpedoes. The universally mounted gyroscope always points to the North pole and is used as a mariner's compass on our iron-clad battleships and submarines."
This is the July 1916 issue of Electrical Experimenter magazine. The cover shows the “Gyro Land Flyer” and the feature article is titled “The Gyroscope–Its Great Utility.” Other articles include an electric typewriter design, a dictating machine, and a strategy for long-distance electric car travel.
