Robophilo: Humanoid Robot for Under $500

by Paul Strauss

RoboPhilo is a compact personal robot that offers a level of sophistication you usually don’t find in robots for under $1000, let alone in one that costs less than 500 clams.



The humanoid ‘bot comes “ready to walk,” which means you won’t have to spend hours putting together the intricate servos and wiring that might have to with other hobby robots.

The 13-inch tall robot has over 20 individual servos for controlling the head, legs, arms, and other joints, so can be programmed to do some pretty complex moves.

You can choose to program movements with your PC, or with the included multi-function wireless remote.

The $499 RoboPhilo is available just in time for the holidays from the RoboBrothers online shop.

    RoboPhilo looks cool but in the video we can’t watch it walking. Usually cheap servos can’t handle difficult tasks like walking as (90% of the cost of a robot comes from the servos).

  2. Mark says:

    The other videos show it walking forward, backwords, and side stepping backwords, and it looks like it’s doing a fine job of it. It also shows it doing a couple flips using its head. This thing looks pretty sweet. The only thing that would make this thing 100% better would be to put some AI into it. Still make it programable but also AI as a choice.

    yeah.. esp walking on carpet…

    Yeah, just search “robophilo” over on YouTube, and you’ll see some videos of the prototype walking (although not that gracefully), and even doing somersaults.
