Tom Atwood writes, "check out last eve's post at Robotis Bioloid kit details and movies that I don't think have previously been publicized. Feedback servos with built in light and sound sensors, daisy-chained servos and an internal network with all sensors and servos having their own addresses; autonomous or programmed or teleoperated humanoids and quadrapeds and spiders, snakes, etc. out of the box, and that's just for starers..." You may recall seeing the Robotis Bioloid kit on our Top 10 Robot Christmas Gift Ideas list a few months ago.

Bioloid review, posted 1 Apr 2006 at 10:28 UTC by lafugitt » (Master)

I was lucky enough to spend some time talking to the Robotis home office staff and to examine the Bioloid system up close at the Robo-One competition here in Tokyo. They were exhibiting, not competing. Bioloid looks quite interesting, and will probably appeal a lot to robotics teachers and instructors that have a number of students. The kit allows quick and easy reconfiguration, and it's modular approach is dead- simple. On the other hand, if you are an advanced robot builder or hacker it's closed nature and use of proprietary module and component designs might be frustrating. I've written a short Bioloid review and included a video on my Robots Dreams weblog.
