"Blind Juggler Robot" bounces metal ball

Found on BotJunkie:

I thought this was a super cool idea when I first found it. This robot has a bouncing/oscillating plate that is very slightly curved in a concave shape. It bounces a metal ball and the curvature of the plate keeps the ball over the plate. As you'd imagine, if the plate was flat, the ball would eventually randomly bounce off the side.

There's a lot of theory and mathematics that they put into this robot, check it out on BotJunkie and their website.
