    That’s an awesome idea for a robot and a great execution! I’ve seen this type in general before (soccer or basketball providing locomotion), and I’m considering building one myself using the parts and the three wheels with perpendicular rollers off of my old Rovio with a bricked MCU. The cool thing about these bots is how sometimes they almost appear to wobble past the tipping point, but they (almost) always recover, making it actually appear as if the bot is far more responsive and agile than it really has to be due to it’s relatively stable position hugging the top of the ball. Great build!
