Cubli balances on one corner
The robot measures 15 cm (5.9 in) per side and contains three "momentum wheels," each one powered by its own brushless motor, and each located on a different face of the cube
Cubli stays balanced even on a tilted surface
Back in October, we heard about MIT's M-Blocks – they're metal cubes that use internal flywheels to hurl themselves around, sticking together magnetically to form simple structures. Now, scientists from ETH Zurich have unveiled something similar. Their Cubli cubic robot also uses flywheels to move around, plus it can actually balance on one corner.
