Bristlebots - New developments of the crowd

The homebrew engineering makes progress. The first controllable or steerable bristlebots entered the YouTube universe - or better - the homebrew robot community.

This bristlebot uses two servos to make it controllable:

I am not completely sure about this one, but it seems to be the most grown up from a engineering point of view. It also uses two pager motors to change the rotation direction. Another video with some more explanation is available here.

I was just wondering, if it would be possible to use the principle of Gyroscope to realize a controllable Bristlebot with just one pager motor.
