- The Cubli: A Cube That Can Jump Up, Balance, and Walk
The Cubli is a 15 × 15 × 15 cm cube that can jump up and balance on its corner. Reaction wheels mounted on three faces of the cube rotate at high angular velocities and then brake suddenly, causing the Cubli to jump up. Once the Cubli has almost reached the corner stand up position, controlled motor torques are applied to make it balance on its corner. In addition to balancing, the motor torques can also be used to achieve a controlled fall such that the Cubli can be commanded to fall in any arbitrary direction. Combining these three abilities -- jumping up, balancing, and controlled falling -- the Cubli is able to 'walk'.

- What is the Betz Mystery Sphere?
Alien Probe, Sentient Machine, Nuclear Weapon, or Junk? What is the Betz Mystery Sphere? In the Spring of 1974, a large brush fire swept across the property owned by Antoine and Gerri Betz. While assessing the damage, they noticed something very out of place. Lying in the smoldering grass, was a highly polished, metal sphere. This became known as the Betz sphere or the Betz orb. Terry Betz, Antoine and Jerri's 21-year-old son, went to pick up the sphere. Although it was only 8-inches in diameter, it was extremely heavy. Then the Betz family did something with the sphere that would change their lives forever. Something that the family would come to regret. They brought it home.
