ROBOTIS DARWIN MINI
Korean brand Robotis has launched a miniature version of Darwin-OP, Darwin-mini. Two times smaller than his brother, he is also made with fewer pieces, so he is lighter and less expensive.
Nevertheless, it has 17 new Robotis servos: XL-320, less powerful but much cheaper.
Darwin-mini is the most flexible humanoid robot with a lot of compatible sensors and the ability to create and assemble 3D printed parts. Chest and head were already printed in 3D.
