Humanoid robots are challenging mechatronics structures with several interesting features. Choosing a humanoid robot to develop applications or pursue research in a given direction might be difficult due to the strong interdependence of the technical aspects. This paper aims at giving a general description of this interdependence and highlight the lessons learned  from the impressive works conducted in the past decade.  The reader will find in the annex a table synthesizing the characteristics of the most relevant humanoid robots.  Without focusing on a specific application we consider two main classes of humanoid robots: the ones dedicated to industrial application and the ones dedicated to human-robot interaction. The technical aspects are described in a way which illustrates the humanoid robots bridging the gap between these two classes.
