Gyrowheel technology looks beneficial for robot use (Video)
We often run across technology developed for other applications that might have quite a bit of value if it was applied to a robot design. The latest example is the Gyrowheel developed by Gyrobike as a training wheel substitute that would help young riders just learning to cycle. Although we're not sure exactly how just off the top of our head, the fact that the Gyrowheel development has already been completed and its manufacturing cost would drop as volumes increase, there must be some neat robotic applications out there just waiting.
