      A new class of control algorithms - “mirror algorithms” - give rise to experimentally observedjuggling behavior in a simple robotic mechanism. The simplest of these algorithms (upon which all the others are founded) is provably correct with respect to a simplified model of the robot and its environment. This paper reviews the physical setup and underlying mathematical theory, discusses two significant extensions of the fundamental algorithm, provides data from our successful empirical verifications of these control strategies and briefly speculates upon the larger implications for the field of robotics.
