Thomas Bewley leads the Coordinated Robotics Lab at the University of Califonia, San Diego. They've developed several novel robots that use automatic feedback control to stay balanced. Switchblade is a small, treaded robot that can climb stairs by flipping itself end-over-end. I-Hop is a two-wheeled robot that can also balance (and hop) on its pogo-stick of a leg.
