Hondas new balancing personal transport.
September 26, 2009
Apparently its insides is a big secret but if you look closely you can see the machine actually moving sideways as it keeps balance.
I don`t know about you guys but as soon as I saw it I wanted to pull it apart to find out how it works, or at least turn it upside down and take a look at the bottom.
Any theories on how it translates sideways with such a slim profile? Theres the obvious ball balancing robots, but a ball that fits in that body would never make it over even the smallest bumps. My first thought was 2 thin independantly driven mechanum wheels on the same axle.
