This mini Segway called ” The Teetering Buffalo” stands approximately 20-inches high and is operated using a standard remote control transmitter. See it in action after the jump.
The user can control both the forward and backward velocity as well as steering, making the vehicle fully drivable under a variety of conditions. Rather than directly influence the controller’s output with the radio signal, a mass shift was used to simulate a rider leaning forward and back. The system maintains its balance independent of the controller input, and requires no driving skill from the user to maintain stability
