MurataGirl unicycle robot

The Murata unicycle robot has a companion now, known as MurataGirl where ‘she’ stands at 50cm tall, tipping the scales at a mere 6kg while boasting similar technology, allowing her to remain stationary, move around on a single wheel without tipping over. This is made possible by arbitrarily controlling rotation of the wheel for front-to-back direction, alongside rotation of the fly-wheel that is integrated into her chest for side-to-side direction, taking instructions from the gyro sensor. She is improved in terms of speed though, capable of riding at 15cm/sec, which is thrice the speed of its predecessor.
