[UPDATE 10/31/2006: The Kondo KHR-2HV Robot is now available from importer AudioCubes.]

Kondo KHR-2HV Robot KitFor those adventurous types, the Kondo KHR-2HV is a complete kit to build your own autonomous walking robot.

The robot features 17 servo motors to control arm, leg and head movements and a lightweight aluminum alloy frame. You can program the robot’s movements from your computer using a USB or Serial connection.

The kit is quite complex and consists of hundreds of pieces and a cryptic Japanese assembly manual, so it’s definitely not for the meek. That said, one avid robot builder has taken the time to put together an English language “how to” guide. Ready for the challenge? You can pick one up for 89,985 yen (appx. $761 USD).
