Proper technology thread
static images need not apply
That's like saying a flare gun and a sniper rifle are the same fucking thing. I mean, you pull the trigger and stuff goes out. The act of balancing on an edge that's only a couple milimeters while not using spinning to keep it balanced is pretty cool.
Wrong, it can control its orientation without any sort of thruster. A drone equipped with this would be much more maneuverable for a layman with no flying experience. The beauty of technology is its application, not the components themselves

>everybody just argues over what I posted
First rule of posting: never post an image more interesting that your post
It's called a drill. Come on, you know it.
No he shouldn't, because we couldn't send them away anymore.
Hell, if that was on homeshopping I'd probably buy one and watch it all day.
It's not a gyroscope.
It's a reaction wheel.
Gyro's keep running and auto-correction comes from the torque provided by their angular momentum.
Reaction wheels are attached to motors which are controlled to add or subtract momentum from a given axis, thus balancing the cube.
Funfact: this shit is used on satellites. It's better than micro thrusters and you theoretically could extract the energy back.
yeah it's pretty sexy before it turns into a desaster.
is that animatronic or just an abomination?
>technology doesn't require maintenance
You clean your computer of dust, right? You service your car? Hell, I'm sure you've at the very least had to change a lightbulb at some point in your life, right?
