Take a look at this most amazing bowling ball balancing robot ever that uses it as its wheels. What I am impressed the most is about the possibilities of this amazing DIY bowling ball balancing robot can do such as help laborers move stuff. Indeed, this gets my award of the year for best balancing robot.
The robot is about half meter high and weighs 7.5 kg. The ball is a 3.6-kg bowling ball with a 20 centimeter diameter and coated with rubber spray.
Its ball driving mechanism uses three omnidirectional wheels developed at Japan’s R&D institute RIKEN
