Do you remember the acrobat robot?
Now here’s another more advanced version with BallP which can even withstand heavy loads without falling.
BallP, which is 51 cm tall (20 inches) and weighs 7.5 kg (16.5 pounds), balances on a ball with the help of 3 stabilizer wheels, gyroscopes, micro-controllers and accelerometers.
Its inventor is Massaki Kumagai, head of the robotics department at Tohoku Gakuin University.
In the demonstration video below, you’ll see BallP carrying a large brick unfazed and even a wooden structure with two of its congeners.
