Designed by Yutaka Igarashi, this yellow robot bike prototype runs on an electric motor and is controlled by high performance robots. The swinging boom the controls steering while hydraulic actuators balance the motorcycle.  Good luck keeping this up on its two wheels, especially after watching how difficult it was for Blue Team and the “Ghostrider” project.

See the computer generated composite after the jump.

  • Look, that is a really pretty motorcycle robot, but what wil the real world application be for? Provided you can keep it upright. I suppose a gyro will have to feature in the circuit somewhere.
