This LEGO Machine Uses Gyroscopic Physics to Steer

This LEGO Machine Uses Gyroscopic Physics to Steer
We’ve seen some pretty cool mechanical LEGO creations over the years. Here’s another one worth checking out. I was recently turned onto the work of LEGO expert builder Yoshihito Isogawa by the fine folks over at The Kid Should See This. Isogawa makes all kinds of cool builds using LEGO,…

Cruise Ships Self-Leveling Pool Tables Counteract The Motion of the Ocean

Cruise Ships Self-Leveling Pool Tables Counteract The Motion of the Ocean
I’ve never been on a cruise before, because the ocean freaks me out. I don’t even want to think about what horrors lie deep under the sea. I’ve always rather assumed that giant cruise ships are pretty much immune to the waves outside, but I guess I am wrong. One…

Gyroscopes in Mobile Devices Can Act as Microphones: Censor that Sensor

Gyroscopes in Mobile Devices Can Act as Microphones: Censor that Sensor
Gyroscopes can be found in most modern mobile devices. They’re meant to help in motion-sensing, but a recent paper by researchers Yan Michalevsky, Dan Boneh and Gabi Nakibly shows that these sensors can also act as microphones. According to the researchers, what makes this accidental feature extra scary is that…

Jyrobike Kid’s Bicycle Can Balance on Its Own: Look Ma, No Man!

Jyrobike Kid’s Bicycle Can Balance on Its Own: Look Ma, No Man!
We’re already working on self-driving cars, so a self-balancing bicycle shouldn’t be as surprising. And yet the Jyrobike is still a sight to behold. The children’s bicycle has electronics and a flywheel built into its front wheel. When activated, the Jyrobike won’t fall down. Even when no one’s on it.…

Lit Motors C-1: Electric Scooter with a Roof?

Lit Motors C-1: Electric Scooter with a Roof?
I’ll admit that if you live in Asia, cars aren’t very convenient, though the trend for super-minis is starting to catch on in Europe and slowly in North America. This prototype vehicle takes things a bit further by taking away a couple of wheels and using gyroscopic stabilization so that…

Self-Balancing Unicycle Version 2.0 Keeps You Upright up to 12 Miles

Self-Balancing Unicycle Version 2.0 Keeps You Upright up to 12 Miles
Self-balancing unicycles aren’t a brand new concept, but other than the Ryno motorcycle, I really haven’t seen much footage of them in action. Apparently, I even missed their appearance on Mythbusters back in 2009, which I thought I watched religiously. While I’ve presumably had my head stuck in the sand,…

DIY Balancing Robot Rocks, Rolls, Then Falls

DIY Balancing Robot Rocks, Rolls, Then Falls
This guy made a sweet little DIY balancing robot that balances without the help of fancy gyroscopes. It’s kind of like a poor man’s version of the Segway-esque A.M.P.bot, the main difference being that this one falls down a lot. The robot uses a “simple switch as a sensor and…

Ampbot: Like a Robot on a Segway With a Boom Box

Ampbot: Like a Robot on a Segway With a Boom Box
Hot off the presses is the A.M.P.Bot, a unique roller-bot that moves around using a gyroscopic balancing system that works much like the Segway Personal Transporter. A.M.P. stands for “Automated Musical Personality”. That’s because the wheeled robot can follow you around and play your tunes wherever you go. When set…

The Uno: Motorcyle Meets Segway

The Uno: Motorcyle Meets Segway
Think the Segway is just too geeky for your Born to Be Wild bad boy lifestyle? Then check out this cool new motorcycle born at the intersection of Geek Street and Hog Heaven Avenue. The Uno is a self-balancing motorcycle that uses a pair of gyroscopes to constantly keep its…
