Self-Balancing Robotic Pogo Stick
posted January 19 2011 8:52.02 by Giorgos Lazaridis

In continue to the inverted-pendulum balancing mechanisms, here is a pogo-stick, which jumps and balances alone, called "iHop". It uses two independently actuated arms in order to simultaneously hop and balance in the lateral plane. This bot is made by youtube user jimboscotty.The stabilization is implemented by torque applied to the two drive wheels. The symmetric design allows it to hop on either end of the central "leg", enabling cartwheeling maneuvers (stay tuned).
