Created by Mr Tentacle, the Omniteuthis is an interesting 3-wheeled robot with with holonomic drive. It sports omniwheels at the the corners, allowing it to move freely in any direction.” See it in action after the jump.

A Robot Logic OMX-3 omni-mixer and an inexpensive rate gyro work together to make it more-or less driveable using a 2-stick heli radio

Additional Info

Omniteuthis features 3 omniwheels mounted at the vertices of an equilateral triangle. A Robot Logic OMX-3 omniwheel mixer and a GWS Gyro work in concert to provide the necessary control. I can move the ROV in any direction, without having to turn to “face” in that direction
