iLean – Balancing and Climbing Robot

at 5:14 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets, Electronic Hacks, Insane Equipment


We have seen lots of self balancing robots ever since the Segway was released but this is the first robot that builds on the self balancing principle. This robot is still a work in progress but what they have so far is amazing. Check out the iLean development page for more info about this cool robot from the team over at UCSD Coordinated Robotics Lab.

"iLean pops up and then cants her wheels inward when she’s ready to climb. In this way, as the wheels leave the ground, she stays upright by sacrificing the orientation of the wheels as she tips side-to-side. Utilizing the wheels in this fashion eliminates the need for an “ankle” on each end of her pole (plus it looks wickedly cool!) Note that iLean v.2 is completely wireless!"

    Hi Akoi,

    I am not exactly sure how it is done but I would think it could lay the stick down on the upper stair, slowly extend the leg so that it eventually touches the lower step. Then the wheels could roll down the upright stick.
