That is sweet! You'd need some pretty serious control loops to accomplish that.

Yeah, I definately won't try it even though it impresses me the most.
Do the links work for you? They don't seem to work for me.
#3  
Nah, they didn't work for me either. That's a good picture though.
#5  
You're welcome.
Hey I added the links a different way this time. Try it.

When I read the title I thought of a bot that is ball shaped and rolls around.:P

Once again Troy, wow. That was pretty cool. Never saw that. Wasn't someone here working on a sphere shaped robot?

Troy's been keeping up on his modern bots. I've been trying to come up with something unique to work on. I was thinking about something like that as something unique, kind of like a hamster in a ball. I still don't know how you mechanically propel and steer something like that without the hamster :). Guess it's not such a unique idea after all though. Wish there was something that could conquer stairs too. Have you seen anything like that? Any ideas out there?

Holy balancing act! I would certainly keep it tethered until all the bugs are worked out!:) It certainly looks unnerving but cool! Thanks for sharing Troy!

I'm with irobot58. I'd be super afraid that it would fall. I get nervous just looking at that thing.

Yeah me too. I thought there may be a lurking robotics engineer who might want to try it.
