I want to present you my work customising the Bioloid Premium Kit.
I added 15 smd LED's to the head of him. I can control these LED's with the cm510 controller.

You are so mean to your robot - making it fall like this on its face.
What, are you a big strong human?
You are lucky you are in Switzerland, or we would be filing a complaint to RPS (Robot Protection Services).

Hehe, I can guarantee, that no one, even robots or human was harmed during my experiments.

Yeah, the padding is a very good idea. You can really never have too much.

If ever you think about trying to get the premium humanoid to land on its feet after pushing itself off a short ledge, test from small drops with lots of padding and work your way up from there. Snapped one's neck after one too many faceplants into the padding.

View weeks ago, I bought the Arbotix controller for my Bioloid. Now in a first step I designed a lightweight backpack to fix it on the robot. The CAD drafting looks like this:

And the 3D plot on the robot:

Further steps are to programm the whole robot

What's wrong with the cm510?

I can't speak for the CM-510 because I never had one, and perhaps Robotis addressed all of my issues with the CM-5 through the CM-510.

My issues with the CM-5 was that I found it too limiting to even dream of using it as a controller for Mech Warfare. It had to do with controlling the robot wirelessly, simultaneously being able to have specific control over a few servos while using poses for the rest, being able to control DC motors, and there was some difficulty in sending it data using other programs.

I sort of want to get my hands on a CM-510 just to see how different it is, but once you have gone down one path, its hard to justify going back and taking a different branch.

Sweet backpack BTW.

OOOHH. Fancy. I like. How much did that set you back?

DB: About the CM-510, you're not missing much... Twice the FLASH, EEPROM, and RAM of the CM-5 with a new set of drivers (actual modifiable source code, not just a pre-compiled library and header) for zigbee, serial, and dynamixel comms. But there is still limited access to pins (though they did add six 5-pin ports with one ADC and one digital I/O pin each), somewhat lack luster documentation, and now with no onboard zigbee. I had much longer post written, but did not want to threadjack.

Thank you all!

It was made in a 3D printer and costs me around 80$. If somebody has interress, I could print another one. Just give me a PM.

Would you mind sharing your 3d file in the Data Center here? Awesome work!

I uploaded the file to Data Center (http://forums.trossenrobotics.com/datacenter/cad-files-5/bioloid-arbotix-backpack-166/)

Update: My Bioloid got an eye in the middle of his stomach ;-)
I designed a bracket for the TV-IP110W Wifi cam. My further steps are to implement image processing software to control the Bioloid on the computer.
