nice find!

anyone ever used that InvenSense IDG-300 gyro? Only $40 . . . the eval board being $150 . . .

Im debating if that is the only sensor on board . . . can't be that easy?! I think I might buy one for my future biped . . .

Seconded for the code.
I wonder if he used PID or fuzzy to control the robot. I cant guess just by looking at the video.

I found it... I think I saw it on Sparkfun.  I wish I had made it, because then I would know how it was designed!  I too would love to know the code and components he used to achieve such balancing greatness!  I whish he had a website that provided some documentation and insight.
