Thread: Gyrobo

    Default Gyrobo

    Looks like a nice little $100 balance bot from South Korea. Although from the shape & color, I might have named it "EggWay".

    Too bad the S3 doesn't balance!

    I got one.

    For the twins' education, natch.

    I sacrifice so much for them.

    Mine came in today's mail, works exactly as advertised in the videos, an amazing little balancing bot. If I find any Easter eggs or make mods, I'll share. The kids and wife liked it, that's a very good sign.

    My fave so far is line following. It comes with a big preprinted curvy line course on the back of the Korean instruction sheet (English instructions are provided on a smaller paper insert). It runs at a medium default speed and makes the turns quite nimbly. But you can run it faster using the remote control. A bit like old slot cars in that you can go very fast on the straights, but you will go off course if you overcook the turns.

    I might need a second one so we can race.

    I still think that this should open up a new category of mini-sumobot challenges. It adds a lot to the competition when the opponents really have to stay upright.
