How Tall can B-Robots Be?

How Tall can B-Robots Be?
I am waiting on a couple of B-Robot kits to test the possibility of making TALL B-Robots. But while I wait I'd like to pose a theoretical question.

Instead of placing a can of beer on the B-Robot (which you claim is possible with the B-Robot), can I place a 6 foot tall foam tube? It would be lighter than a can of beer.

Another related question? Since the B-Robot is an "inverted pendulum" where should the weight be place in a tall bot?

In other words, in a 6 foot bot, the only components that have to be at the bottom are the wheels, stepper motors, and IMU. The rest of the electronics, including the batteries, could be 6 foot up at the top of the bot.

Any thoughts on making tall B-Robots?
