That is the ballbot.
The robot has gyro's, as you said. It takes readings from the gyro's and determines the angle of the robot.
If it is not straight up it will try to adjust this by moving.
It moves by having two rollers roll against the big ball, one for x and one for y.
I am pretty sure there is more info elsewhere. Ill see if i can track it down.
