Robot Acrobats and Balancing a Broom on Your Chin

Here’s an amazing video and some awesome tech brought to highlighted by Make Magazine

You may have seen this video go viral this week. It’s exciting to watch and marvel at. So, why is this inverted pendulum thing so challenging? Go find a broom and balance it on your chin. Notice how often you have to move to keep the broom stable above you. Think about how challenging it would be to, not only catch that broom on your chin, but to continue to balance it once it lands. In order to accomplish that with a friend, they’d have to throw it just right and you’d have to constantly correct your position in an attempt to keep it stable upon landing.
