RoboPhilo Upgrade Option

By Tom Atwood
Editor, Robot Magazine
Posted June 9, 2011

  RoboPhilo is the programmable humanoid robot produced by RoboBrothers. It was among the 28 odd humanoid robots featured in the Robot Magazine Humanoid Buyers Guide. It is notable because while it is among the more sophisticated humanoids it is also one of the most affordable. 
 A new upgrade to this platform was developed by hobbyist Rick Newman. He added two ounces of weight to each foot and finds that the robot is a more stable walker and believes this could improve the robot’s performance in some forms of competition. We checked with RoboBrothers and they are evaluating this and may consider the weighted mod as an option. We will keep you posted.
