    Re: Which one?

    Considering a standard humanoid robot would have two arms, is it not obvious?

    Anything more complex than a toy humanoid robot using hobby servos or AX-12 dynamixel servos is going to be a very expensive, dedicated research platform.

    Arms can be quite cheap, although arms not using larger motors/servos are not much more than a novelty (looking at you OWI Robotic Arm EDGE). Larger and sturdier/stronger arms can be usable in everyday scenarios without extensive software experience, where a humanoid will require lots of work just to make it not fall down and/or destroy itself. A dedicated arm can also potentially be assembled into a larger robot at a later date (stick it on a wheeld rover, or make a crawler by adding more arms to act as legs (e.g., DLR Crawler used 'fingers' from a robotic hand to make a crawling robot)).
    Please pardon the pedantry... and the profanity... and the convoluted speech pattern...
