Building a self-balancing robot too easy for you? Why not take an extra step and trick one out so that it can breakdance! Attributed to Dr. GIY and Okamoto-san, the MANOI GO is apparently built of a heavily modified MANOI AT01.
It’s pretty awesome, however if I was a human breakdancer competing against it, I would be tempted to argue that using a built-in motor to do head spins is kind of like cheating. Of course, it’s probably not a good idea to argue with a breakdancing robot, so maybe I would just let it win. [via technabob]
