• ISAMARO Mark II, an online store dedicated to hobby robot kits, is taking orders for a new entry-level bipedal robot called ISAMARO Mark II.  The first version of the robot cost a hefty 340,000 JPY (approximately $4,200 USD), but they’ve managed to cut the cost in half (to 168,000 JPY / $2,070 USD) by swapping the Kondo-brand servos used in its 19 joints.  They originally went with more powerful servos (19 kg/cm torque), which were replaced by those with a maximum torque of 13 kg/cm.  The kit, which was designed for use in competitions, will ship this December.
