Murata: Evolved (unicyclist robot)

[CEATEC 2009] Murata, the unicyclist robot that uses sensors to stay balanced has been upgraded at this year’s Ceatec in Tokyo. Thanks to new sensors, it can now ride three times as fast (15cm/sec), and handles itself much better in turn (tight turns!). The Murata robot can also detect obstacles and is incredibly accurate. As a demo, they made it ride a narrow (2cm) slant without falling. The robot is used to promote sciences to children.
