Nice robot - but it'll only be practical if there are no stairs, no high transoms to get over. Maybe if it had two legs with balls, and the ability to stand on one, move the other, then shift weight from one to the other...

Yeah, that's called "walking" - but rolling should be more efficient for smooth surfaces like floors, saving power, so a hybrid may make good sense.
