"You might say that Michael Overstreet believes in evolution. His mission is to start with a working humanoid robot design, and reduce the cost of systems and components to make it more affordable. The DARwin-OP robot is available from Robotis for about $12,000. Michael hopes to get similar functionality to the DARwin-OP for under $1,000.
He’s taking it a step at a time, initially saving costs by 3D printing the parts that hold the robot together. We hope Michael will be successful! The evolution is here, and it will be roboticized."
