May 31, 2011
Gyrobike(R) the company changing the way kids learn to ride, announced today that it will present the invention story behind Gyrobike’s technology at the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation on Saturday, June 4, at 4 p.m.. The interactive presentation is a part of the center’s program called “Innovative Lives” featured in Spark!Lab — the center’s hands-on invention space.
What began as an idea by four Dartmouth College students in and undergrad engineering class is now a line of products that have proven themselves in the marketplace to be a better solution than training wheels. “Gyrobike has come a long way from being a series of drawings in a class notebook," said Gyrobike CEO Daniella Reichstetter who will present the program. "Today, Gyrobike’s products are found in retailers across the country and we are well on our way to making training wheels the technological equivalent of the rotary phone."
