It joins his larger Synchro Drive which he says is "One of my favorite inventions. The ring gear spinning on the perimeter is on one end of a differential and the system that turns the sincro-drive (all four wheels at once) is on the other. When resistance is felt on the ring gear (running into wall), the power transfers through the diferential to the sincro drive turning mechanism. The power follows the path of the least resistance. No sensors but it call still detect and change course, all mechanically."
Maybe he could add a suction device to make it one of those robotic room vacuum cleaners!

I've been interested (some people might say obsessed) in purely mechanical (non-electronic) obstacle-avoiding robots for a while. Here are a couple of my other attempts at this:
And here is one by someone else:
