Idea on image stabilisation

I just had a crazy idea on how to make a k*****s IS system:
1 - put the sensor shifting system that Pentax already have to compensate for small camera vibrations
2 - add a giro-stabilizer system to PREVENT camera shake and movement (like the one satellites use). Some kind of disk rotating at over 10000 should do the trick.
On a second taught... you don't need sensor shifting if you got no. 2 working.
The downside is that the camera need to be light in order for this to work.

I have seen a gyro stabilizer (in an american photo magazine, maybe Pop Photo) that attaches tho te camera base plate. Don't know if it works, but, the way I see it, it should. Due to gyroscopic recession, it might also be a bear to change direction or it might scew up any attempt at panning (for those with no experience with a gyroscope, the movement will try to be at 90 degrees to what you want it to be).

I would think the biggest issues with this approach would be size and power consumption. First gyro stablizer mounts used by pros are usually about the same size of their equipment to properly offset vibration and movement. Second these systems typically require a seperate power supply in order to power the continuous movements of the flywheels inside the stabilizer so running off of internal power would drain the battery.

I think the reverse is true. The camera will be made very heavy if such a mechanically working gyro is added. It will work, nonetheless.

wow, what a bargain! At that price, you may as well buy two!

What if it was powered by a miniature fusion reactor? That would eliminate the need for heavy batteries.

multiple vibration reduction systems often react sympathetically somewhere within their harmonic range creating force-structure oscillation coupling. It can become catastrophic in worst case scenario: motors, wine glasses, etc., exploding.
