  • watched the show a bit looks very nice. (its late in my region so i`m off). just wanted to share my own self balancing i built a long time ago (i admit there are no sparkfun parts there, but it can be built from what sparkfun holds and i got familiar with sparkfun only later on). Documentation: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=143261.0;attach=33884 Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2tlKteO_ZU hope it helps someone to built his own, enjoy.
