KHR-3HV Gets “Achilles”, A New Parallel-Linked Leg

Biped Robot News Japan has loads of first-hand English coverage of Kondo’s 6th Anniversary from earlier this month, and has the goods on “Achilles”, a new parallel-linked leg set designed by Crafthouse (the same people who brought us the God Hands).

The new legs make use of Kondo’s KRS-2552HV servos, and interestingly don’t require actuation in the knees.  The legs seem to provide for enough stability, and will cost 21,000 JPY ($230 USD) – no servos included.
