Our buds over at Robot Magazine have an online exclusive, with lots of photos, of the forthcoming new VEX Robotics Design System, dubbed the Revell VEXPlorer. As you probably know, the VEX system, first sold by Radio Shack, was sold to Revell Monogram. The Robot mag piece has details about the content, pics of the components, and details of the partnership with SolidWorks, who’s developing a Student Design Kit (3D CAD and mechanical design software) to go with the VEX system. And as far as I can tell, all of the previous VEX components are compatible. The VEXPlorer is available for pre-order on Amazon. It’ll retail for $199. The Amazon page also has a goofy Ronco-esque Flash commercial that’s worth the click-through.
