Cycloidal drive

Zero Backlash and a whole lot of awesome. Build one for yourself if you have access to a 3D printer. Read about them on Wikipedia.

How they work

All Cycloidal drives use multiples of 2 cycloid discs that are out of phase by 180 degrees to cancel out vibrations.

Advantages are high gear ratios and torque in a reduced space with no backlash.
