Robobuilder or Bioloid Premium?

Hello,

I don't know where is better post this topic, anyway...

I am considering the purchase of my first robot.
I'm thinking between Robobuilder and Bioloid Premium.

For me is very important the stability and the smooth walk with balance of the robot.
I also wanted to know which one is better suited for the recognition of
images or objects and voice. Is there a way to managed this input for doing something to the robot?
I really like the Robobuilder.
It has an interesting start price and is possible to extend in the future, but it doesn't have a gyro, and i think is very important hardware feature.
Is it not possible to mount one?
Other question are:
Which one has better support in term of resources like source code programming or communities support?
Which one is easier to program? Are there libraries that to help to do different actions and interaction with the outside?
There is a list of all sensors that are possible to mount?

Thanks for all.
bye

I have both.

I really like the Robobuilder.

So do I, very much, but.

If you can afford it buy the Bioloid due to better support from both the supplier and on forums.

The next year will see the transition from 8 bit to 32 bit controllers as standard. Bioloid will make this transition, it is not clear if Robobuilder will. You will need 32 bit to meet your goals.

If Premium is too expensive now, consider comprehensive kit , and spend extra on a linux controller later.

Thank you for your answer.
I wanted to ask if you could give me some starting points to begin to learn
the use of the Bioloid.

For example:
- Interesting links to other forums.
- Links to what I need for programming Bioloid. I know C++, C# and Objective-C.
- Links to introduce the visual recognition to the Bioloid (hardware and software)

So, when i'll buy the Bioloid I'll be prepared :-)

thank you very much
