A NXT gyro robot on the ISS

On legospace.com, there's a great video of an astronaut in the International Space Station demonstrating the effects of microgravity on a LEGO® MINDSTORMS NXT model:

Note: there is no actual gyro sensor (like the Hi-technic/ mindsensors /dexter Industries version) on the robot that went into space, it is the mechanics of a fast spinning object (rotor) that results in a gyro behavior. See also:

this is the Education version made with the base kit and the expansion kit. Also A retail and EV3 retail version are build.
