The ROBOTIS Darwin-Mini Humanoid Robot is a robot kit with an open source embedded board. The Darwin-Mini app uses button, gesture, voice recognition and messenger to control or change movements.

Its parts are also 3D printable; You could 3D print different colored feet, hands, or legs with vibrant filament colors to personalize your bot. DARwIn-Mini also has neat embedded LEDs to enhance his activities. You can use your bot with the pre-programmed features on the mobile app or program DARwIn-Mini yourself with the easy-to-use, C-based RoboPlus software.

Darwin-Mini utilizes the OpenCM9.04-C microcontroller, which runs on a 32bit ARM Cortex-M3, and is easily programmed over USB with Robotis’ OpenCM software. Each Dynamixel XL servo has an embedded processor that allows for advanced control of the servos as well as reading data such as temperature, position, and torque. Bluetooth communication allows for control and programming of Darwin via a computer or tablet.

The RoboPlus software allows for capture and playback of various poses, or use the wide variety of built-in motions. Advanced motion such as headstands, rolls, and picking himself up from the ground are no problem for Darwin-Mini.
