Balancing Cube: Self-Balancing Robot Can Stand on a Single Point

This incredible, unusual robot can balance itself on any of its corners when stood on point.

The Balancing Cube was developed by Sebastian Trimpe and Raffaello D’Andrea for the Institute of Dynamic Systems and Control. The strange looking robot uses a set of DC motors and sensors attached to six networked balancing mechanisms which allow the robot to constantly maintain an upright position.

It can balance not only on its corners, but on any edge. It can even keep from tipping over when pushed (gently). Now why you’d need a robot to do this is anyone’s guess. Maybe for a robotic tightrope act?
