The latest issue of our hobby magazine has just been released in Italian newstands. A really cool news is the new Hitech Mavin Robot. I first saw this little bot during last Nuremberg Toy Fair and seems that it’s finally been releasead in the European market. What I like of this little robot, beside the accessible price, is the fact that you can choose several blocks (modules) to modify the characteristics of the bot: something like a mix between a Lego robot and the Denshi blocks from Gakken with a little retro touch (the design rminds me the Movit robots from the 80’s). The only thing missing from the package is a MAC OSX version of the iconâ€“based visual programming software (right now it’s just compatible with Windows).
