Acrophobia, a nervous machine with no human-serving goal, but with a single fear: of dropping the ball.
Unlike any other ball balancing machine, Acrophobia has no interest in keeping the ball centered. She is just afraid to drop it, getting trapped in near-infinite loops of her own making.
Hardware: Custom designed MDF and cardboard rack & pinion mechanisms, Turnigy Servomotors, Raspberry Pi 2, PiCamera.
Software: OpenCV and Python, VNC server for remote control
