Previously, electronics master James Bruton, has blown away the internet’s mind with a previous invention of a walking wheel he fully constructed out of feet. Now the clever inventor has taken his idea further. Bruton has invented an amazing omnidirectional vehicle fully built with the use of balls instead of wheels. He was initially inspired after doing research about the use of balls as wheels for an vehicle. After coming up with his unique idea, he decided to make a three-part series about this unique concept.
“The original concept for this wheel was based on a project from Osaka University. The wheel is split into two hemispheres which can rotate freely and independently, this allows the wheel to be driven actively in one axis and passively in the other. …What about, instead of wheels, we make a vehicle which uses balls, and we make it big enough to ride on?”
