A cube, it is not made to run but if we give it the necessary “forces”, maybe…! That’s what scientists from the Swiss Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control decided to work on! the possibility to permit an object such as a cube from moving. Here is the Cubli.
The Cubli is a 15cm cube that integrates sensors, motors and propellers and other, who is able to walk, jump or stand upright on its tip or edge. But better than words, I’ll let you see the video after the break to see the jump.
Now imagine that kind of engine integrated into everyday objects, like a smartphone to be held right instead of vibrating! I love it! Let’s us know what you think in the comment section.
