Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing. The video of the robot cycler is interesting. But, doesn't it put his feet down? How does the bicycle remains vertical even when not pedaling? Does the robot include a gyroscope?

@Peter Clarke: nice slides, MEMS approaching $5.7B in a couple of years, it is not surprising that many countries are jumping to the arena. What is the longer term plan for these efforts, beyond the R&D and prototyping? Where do they intend to manufacture? MP Divakar
