To finish off our week of dIMU posts, we thought we’d share some videos. One of the most amazing things you can make with the dIMU is a balancing robot, similar to a Segway. We’ve all seen this before, but here is a roundup of different Segways that you can build, some bloopers from when we first got started, and a video of Darth Vader riding around on his own dIMU Enabled AnyWay.
Matt Allen has put together more than a few Segways. Matt has posted the code to his NXT Segway program in NXC. You can find the code on his website here:http://mattallen37.wordpress.com/2011/10/23/dimu-nxt-segway-program/
Matt Allen also posted this really impressive video of his latest invention: the NXShield Segway that uses the dIMU. His site has the code up and some great views of the dIMU. http://mattallen37.wordpress.com/2011/11/01/nxshield-dimu-segway/
A video of his work can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=isGAGW3oHms
This is a video of the Segway that Xander built: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ym5Bc82-QO8
And finally, some outtakes from our builds the past few weeks. These look kind of funny when they fall!
