Review of the VEX robotics system

Vex PC Magazine has a review of the RadioShack VEX Robotics system. The VEX system was built with the education market in mind and is part of Dean Kamen’s popular FIRST Robotics competitions. At $299.99 (not counting batteries), the VEX System is more than just a kiddy construction set. It is best suited for the scientifically inclined teen (or classroom), and is a perfect fit for the robo-hobbyist who can’t afford an AIBO, but might be willing to build his own metal companion.

    I’ve been looking into this for a while, as it seems like an interesting kit. It really bugs me, though, that the website doesn’t tell you what the capabilities of the microcontroller are. How many I/O lines? Analog inputs? How is it programmed? There’s no way to know.
