Stabilizing an inverted pendulum in Mathematica

Andrew Moylan recently wrote a blog post about using Mathematica to experiement with models of stabilized inverted pendulums. If you teach a class on control systems or mechanics, this could make an interesting student lab activity:

Here is a link to Andrew's notebook:
