This is a list of machines that can perform physical juggling patterns.

Bouncing and rolling Edit

Toss juggling Edit

  • The Buehgler robot, designed by Martin Bühler and built by Daniel Koditschek and Alfred Rizzi in 1989, juggles two ping pong balls in columns by bouncing them off of a rotating bar.
  • The Sarcoman Robot made by Sarcos Robotics in 1995, which is remotely controlled by a human operator, can juggle a 3 ball cascade using two cups at the ends of its arms. It can also do devil sticks, balance a pole, and bounce a ball on a paddle.
  • In 2001, Ernie Palarca built a machine that juggles 3 balls in a reverse cascade.
  • A robot made by students at the Czech Technical University in Prague can juggle up to 5 pool balls. It has two arms that can move vertically and horizontally and have cups at the ends that it uses to hold the balls. A high-speed camera is used to detect the movement of the balls and predict where the arms need to move to catch them. A spring-loaded third arm is used to add balls to the pattern while starting and when the machine drops.
  • A robot made by Paul Kulchenko can bounce 2 ping pong balls on a horizontal paddle. It tracks the movement of the balls using high-speed cameras and uses that information to calculate where to move the paddle.
  • A robot made by Takahiro Kizaki and Akio Namiki can juggle 2 balls in one hand, using two high-speed cameras to track the movement of the balls.
  • A humanoid robot made by Disney Research can juggle a shared 3 ball cascade with a human partner. It uses an external camera system to track the balls thrown to it, so it can predict where it will need to move its hand to catch them.
  • Stephen Meschke made a machine that can cascade 3 balls.
