The basic principles of four representative unconventional gyros are developed. The force between the plates of a charged capacitor manifests itself as the basis for rotor support in the electrostatic gyro. The cryogenic gyro support is dependent on the unusual electric and magnetic behavior of metals at extremely low temperatures. The laser gyro utilizes high frequency electromagnetic radiation instead of angular momentum to sense inertial rotations. The angular momentum of the nuclear gyro is that of sub-atomic particles of matter. Author
