Fly Wheel Cane

Gyroscopic Cane
  [vote for,

This is a walking cane with a weighted spinning thing coming off it so you can spin it in rhythm while you walk. You could then generate energy and power the sound system.

       I figured this would assist with balance.

       If you have really good rhythm and dexterity but really bad ballance then it would help with your balance.

       Fidget spinners for geezers...

       I think a hamster wheel cane would be more fun.

       A geezer wheel? Aren't those called treadmills?

       If the cane had two opposed flywheels, and you plugged it in a night to spin them up, the cane could stand there by itself. Maybe even do like [norm] said and assist balance.   

       Put a wheel on the end, and push it ahead as you stroll along.

       The reason why this is cool is that all of the lopsided spinners on people's umbrellas would get into the rhythm of all of the different people's gaits who were carying them on their way to and from work. As you hold an umbrella and walk the tip describes an interesting, swirly, repetitive path through the air and the lopsided spinner adapts from the device to the path through the air.

       So they should have LED lights! flashing! in different colors! Like fireflies on a summer night!
