So, in case anyone was wondering if I am a nerd, I have proof in the affimative... caught on video. I am a mechanical engineering major and I deal a lot with controls systems. Since no one has any idea what that means I have provided this video to kind of explain. In this video we have a metal rod that can rotate up and down placed on a base that can rotate horizontally. The base is controlled by a motor and the idea is to balace the rod by moving the base. Its basically like trying to balance a stick on your hand, except we did it with motors controlled by a computer. I thought this was pretty cool, but I guess that just confirms that I am a nerd.
