Robot balancing on a ball

We have seen many robots that balance on flat surface. But this is actually nothing compared to one that balances on the ball. Ufactory from instructables built amazing balancing robot that stands on a ball and balances itself by using three omni-directional wheels driven by three DC motors. Robot can move to any direction by guiding it with remote control.

From technical point of view, robot is based on STM32 ARM Cortex microcontroller and other electronics that allow driving motors, receiving remote signals, reading sensors like gyro, accelerometer, geomagnetic, encoders. Robot caries a camera module that allows sneaking arround and capturing images. Top plexiglass plate could be used to carry things like birthday cake – hopefully without dropping it…
