Description

The Metal Fighter is the second generation robot of humanoid robots developed by MiniRobot and as such includes newer more advance technology such as the MRC-3024FX microcontroller (which can control up to 24 servos). And based on their experience in designing robots, MiniRobot have designed the Metal Fighter to be easier to assemble and requiring less parts (should only take 1-2 hours to assemble with a screwdriver). In addition, it's light-weight rugged design means it will be more resiliant to falls and knocks.

Programmable with RoboBasic, a language field tested using the Robonova platform, the Metal Fighter ensures it is a versatile platform to learn about robotics and includes the ability to be expanded with such options as Zigbee wireless controllers, voice recognition modules, LCD displays and various senors (gyro, acceleration, ultrasonic).

RoboBasic is a programming language allowing advanced user more control over their robot which contains specific commands for robot operation. Used in conjuction with RoboScript and RoboRemcon the user has the ability to greatly refine their control over the robot.
