Thanks for resurrecting this! Now I want to casually slip the word Hemispherical Omnidirectional Gimbaled Drive into normal conversation and see how people react!

Our recourses have been dedicated to our College VEX bots, If we ever get enough parts for a spare robot, we will continue to persure this. But for now we can not since alot of our current metal is in use for our robots (more on that later)

Thanks for the concern

I haven't fallen completely off the cliff yet!

Try using HOG drive instead. Not only does it come off the tongue a little easier but it sounds like a 1902 fundraiser.

Re: Hemispherical Omnidirectional Gimbaled Drive

I believe the main issue with this drive system will be the motor attached to the hemispherical section. Compared to the weight of the robot in the video (and most other HOG drive robots I have seen) the drive motor is simply massive. I'm not sure a CIM motor would be a viable powersource.
