The Cubli: A Gravity-Defying Cube

The Cubli is a 15cm cube that can jump and balance on it’s corner. Reaction wheels mounted on three of the four cube faces rotate at a very high angular velocity then brake suddenly, causing a jump. Once the cube has almost reached it’s corner, controlled motor torques are applied creating a corner balance. Oh and it can also walk. Welcome to the future.
