The cost difference between the two , does not justify a few leds and clear plastic. (is this the only difference?)
If you are going to stock upgrade servos, the 5710K version looks like a good entry robot....and more hackable than isobot?

I've never been one for fancy transparent bodies...

Do you have an idea of the UK prices?

Definitely the black.

The transparent one with the LEDs lit up looks like a walking Christmas tree.

Definitely more hackable than the isobot, I mean, the servos even have their own I/O inputs so you can make them control other things + themselves.

There are ebay listings for these robots. The listing person has zero previous sales, so it would be a risky transaction. I am not recommending these listings, merely pointing out that they exist. Perhaps these robots will be available outside of Korea soon?

Transparent robot for $699 Item number 170226298682
Black robot for $499 Item number 170226298932

The price at RoboSavvy for the Robobuilder 5710K is going to be about 320GBP (640$) excluding VAT (ie: +17.5% = 376GBP for ECC shipping addresses)

This ranks the humanoid as the the cheapest in the non-toy category


So just a bit more expensive than the inflatable insoles guy sells them on ebay from Korea given that he charges 100$ for shipping.

The technical specs and expansion capability of the Robobuilder appear to be much better than Robophilo. The design is more advanced and the supplier software more "open" at no additional cost for SDK.

Of course a silver at Robogames for Robophilo means a head to head competition is now required with Huno. This will determine if the Robobuilder execution matches their apparent superior design.

Finally, there is no such thing as a better robot in my opinion. That is like saying which is the best breed of dog. Opinion will vary and debate can be quite noisy ! As with dogs the performance relates more to the owner than the robot. If you are really a robot person, you will gain enormous pleasure from either.

I just wish that they didn't use those plastic joints for the robobuilder... makes it less durable, but then again it could turn out like the bioloid with strong plastics. Im a little annoyed that for the humanoid config their seems to be no way to make a dual knee joint design or hip pivots or waist rotate :(.

And to Raul- Robophilo has 20DOF compared to robobuilders 16DOF.

We shall see about that....where there's a will, there's a way....

just wish that they didn't use those plastic joints for the robobuilder.


If plastic joints are a real problem we shall just have to make metal replacements
