The technology of gyro contributed by Einstein in his invention of the electro-dynamic storage and electro-dynamic drive for the gyro. Einstein had acquired the necessary technical knowledge, as he had been appointed in 1914 in a patent dispute between Hermann Anschütz-Kaempfe and Elmer Ambrose Sperry as reviewers. Mechanical gyros are built today with Einstein's patented technology.
