A gyroscope (approx. diameter: 1ft, weight 8lb, variable spinning speed) powered by small electric motor. The gyroscope would be mounted within a plastic shell with aerodynamic exterior, comfortable backing and shoulder straps (would resemble a back pack).

       <raises hand> I wanna be the tester for this.

       Based on the effect I've experienced just with a spinning bicycle wheel, I'm gonna guess that 8lbs might be excessive.

       Would certainly help with your posture.
