Asked by: d brown
Subject: water ring
Question: A ring of circulating water, preferably very small chambers but many chambers making up the ring, should work as a gyroscope and the water could be redirected rather quickly without losing its momentum using bursts of air which would get rid of the gyroscopic effect quickly in that ring then starting a gyroscope in the opposite direction in the same ring if needed.
...or use a more massive fluid like mercury or gallium, I think it is.
i like control.

 Yet again I have a "my bad".
For this one it's the fact we only have to lock the gyro in two directions perpendicular to each other and we can easily get it back to it's start position. Or any position we need.
