Robotic cube Cubli surprises with its perfect balance of technology
We are not the first time consider robotic cubes. For example, in October of this year we told you about M-Blocks , robotic cubes gathering on your orders in all sorts of designs. But unlike Cubli, developed at the Institute of System Dynamics and Control Theory, and which will be discussed today, cubes M-blocks from the robotics group at MIT are not able to balance. In turn Cubli able to do it like a real acrobat.
Yet between these two inventions have something in common. Cubli use several rotating wheels to allow movement. Three such internal wheel, angled in different planes with respect to each other and by speeding up or reducing their speed can create enough momentum to the entire structure had its own balance. In addition, due to the speed difference cube capable of being rolled from place to place.
Cubi creators say that the system of rotating wheels is very similar to the one that stabilizes the space satellites. In the future, scientists from the Institute of System Dynamics and Control Theory, plan to apply this technology in the construction of balancing robots that in the future it may be able to study other planets.
Cubli video demonstration can be viewed below.
Perhaps ago, Google had to buy Terrafugia?
Next VS Laser Inkjet technology
