An intelligent bike sensor that has natural English query support for recorded motion data. It consists of a wheel mounted, embedded sensor, iPhone app, and cloud server.
A shapeshifting robot that rolls by changing its shape thanks to cylindrical, motor-controlled, external plate pairs surrounding an inner core. The plates both push off the ground and change the location of the center of gravity, resulting in movement!
