It's awesome! The shoulder rotation is different, and the design look sleeker :D

So these are cheaper versions of the RB1000. The RB2000 apears to have two DOF missing in the legs, as well as in the arms, so 4 servos lighter, maybe six? And the RB300 looks more like a playtoy, which isnt altogether bad... they must be trying to accomadate for another basis here.

Interesting... I like Vstone stuff, the brackets are great, but this is certainly a step in a different direction... The RB300 sure is cute isnt it. :)

Hopefully this means we will see some more designs out of Vstone in the future too. cool

You are correct about the RB2000, hivemind. 4DOF less in the legs, and 2DOF less in the arms. BUT there are 2 others! the RB2500 and the RB2800! The RB2500 has the same flexibility as the RB1000, and the RB2800 is the same as the RB2500 but it also has arm rotation (YAW) and double servo knees. All of them have speakers, and can make good sound fx and talk as well.

Very nice. I like the voice :D .

Red
P.S. The RB2500 is an upgrade from the RB2000, and the RB2800 is an upgrade from the RB2500.

EDIT: I like the walking sfx... Boom! Clack! Yeah, the RB300 is cute. Oh, and there is an upgrade kit for RB300->RB2000

From what I can tell with BabelFish, the RB-2000 can be upgraded to the RB-2500 and RB-2800. And yes, the RB-300 is the cutest little robot ever.. :)

My favorite part about the RB-2000 is the sound effects and talking and what-not.

Actually, it is two RB2000 and one RB2800, which is on guitar.

RB-2000 Series Demos

RB-2000 series demonstrations - video taken October 19th at the JR Robotics booth, All Japan PlaModel/RadiCon 2006 show in Chiba.

My initial impression is pretty positive overall. The performance is good, and shows off the robots well. It will be interesting to see how user-friendly the RB-2000 series is to program and work with.

Oh man, those RB-300s are cool, and actually look like they might be within my budget. :D Anybody know where I could get one in the U.S., or better yet, get just the brackets so I can make my own?

Cheers,

The RB-300 isn't out yet; however, you can get an extremely similar robot from VStone. It's called the Robovie-I. It's basically the same thing, but it looks a bit more cutesy.

It's the same robot. Actually the whole RB series comes from VStone. As of last night the JR website didn't show anything about the RB-300 or RB-2000 series, but all the information's available on the VStone site.

Here's a photo of the Robovie-I I took this afternoon at the Sanwa booth at the show:

Image

Sanwa provides the RC remotes for the VStone robots.

It's just my personal feeling, but the VStone versions have better styling. The plastic body cover and metail finish/colors on the frame parts looks much better to me on the VStone robots, even though the mechanical design is the same. Perhaps it's the JR Robotics blue that turns me off a bit.

The robot's a lot thicker than I expected from the online photos, and the way that it tilts it's front plate to the side when it tries to kick seems really odd.

Image

The JR folks mentioned that an upgrade kit is in the works to convert the RB-300 to the RB-2000 configuration.
