Segstick ~ DIY Self-Balancing Powertool Scooter!

MIT's Shane Colton shows how to build a Segstick self-balancing scooter... out of powertools and spare parts! Describeth he on Instructables...
"Literally some kind of broomstick I found in the MITERS workshop. It is powered direct by two DeWalt cordless drills chucked to two 6" wheels. The controller is an Arduino. Additional supporting devices include an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) from Sparkfun and two motor drivers from Pololu."
