With just a few shopping days left before Christmas, we were very happy to see that the exciting RoboPhilo humanoid robot is available through the RoboBrothers website online store. We suspect it will pop up on other well known robot distributors websites momentarily. RoboPhilo comes in two configurations, a fully assembled version ready to walk for under $500, and a kit version for under $400.
We had the opportunity to do a detailed evaluation of the RoboPhilo robot for our product review that appeared in the Winter 2007 issue of Robot Magazine. The price/performance on this low cost yet fully featured robot is excellent, but we were even more impressed by it's open software architecture and the ability it provides for users to really get involved with the robot.
