Murata Unicycle Robot – Pic
Murata Boy is a two wheel cycling robot designed by Murata Mfg Co.
Murata now has a humanoid unicycling robot with slant detection installed to make sure the little fellow doesn’t all over.
The 50-cm robot can go forward and backward as well as stop. That’s pretty much all I know how to do, too.
Balance is retained by a chest device that rotates to control horizontal motion. I wonder out loud here, can I get one installed? And, if so, will it keep me from falling over, too?
The unicycling robot will be seen in the near future and will earn it’s keep by hanging out at elementary and middle schools as a teaching resource.
