Kondo KHR-3HV Humanoid Robot USD ~$1700
This robot taps in at a relatively high 1700 bucks so it's good to hear that they've made cost cutting decisions by making the robot progressively extendible but cleverly leaving out 5 servos giving the base model 17 dof expandable to 22 dof. This enables one extra degree of motion in each arm and leg and one in the body allowing the robot to twist at the waist. The new microcontroller board RCB-4 enables the controls up to 35 serial servos of KHR-3HV Humanoid Robot. The front and rear covers are rigid ABS plastic. The robot sports KRS-255HV servos which have the ability of being serially networked (no more messy control wire bunches) the servos have an amazing 14kg/cm torque capacity. These servos feature an all metal gear system with ball-bearing supported output shafts for a smoother and more powerful operation.
