Hobby humanoid robots are small humanoid robots designed for hobby use. They are distinguished from more sophisticated robots that are invented for industrial/commercial use, such as ASIMO, QRIO, HRP-2 or so on. Hobby humanoid robots have only poorer actuators and sensors than industrial robots, but are much cheaper. Although the control program is also very simple, you can make them perform various actions by giving a few pose data.
Nowadays, this kind of robot is becoming more and more popular and several competition events are held in Japan.
