You might be interested to take a look at our Acroban robot, based on Robotis bioloid motors: http://flowers.inria.fr/acroban.php
and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQ9xd4sqVx0


Acroban is a lightweight compliant humanoid robot capable of robust semi-passive dynamic locomotion, life-like movements, and offers the possibility of a new kind of playful physical human-robot interaction. We developped this platform to explore how morphological constraints can simplify the developmental acquisition of complex sensorimotor skills, as well as to explore novel kinds of human-robot interaction.

Really amazing compliant robot behaviour

Where are the hardware designs? source code? firmware ?
This was sponsored by public funding as an academic research.
so why can't it all be made available to the public.

I really think the funding model and lifeline of academic research should adapt to the 21st century. It is currently stuck in 17th century framework of article publication and "letters" and conferences rather then online activity, blogs and opensource.
