Nexus Robot introduces the 100mm Omnidirectional Wheel (Brass Bearing for Rollers). This omni-wheel could be mounted to Nexus Robot kit 10003 and NexusRobot kit 10006. The Omni-directional wheels are unique as they are able to roll freely in two directions. The Omni-direction wheels allow a robot to convert from a non-holonomic to a holonomic robot. A non-holonomic robot that uses normal wheels has only 2 out of 3 controllable degrees-of-freedom - moving forward/backwards and rotation. Not being able to move side ways makes a robot slower and less efficient in reaching its given goal.
