At the same time, work on humanoids has been almost considered as mere enthusiast's concern. The biped humanoid robot has forty-three mechanical degrees of freedom and four passive degrees of freedom a translational motion and three rotational Humanoid. Most of the available humanoid prototypes have a high number of degrees of freedom, a complex control and a high cost.

By changing the configuration along the self-motion curve a humanoid arm can increase its rigidity or compliance and can gain mechanical advantage near kinematic singularities.
