Did you know that CTREX Pro Subscribers can “bookmark” reviews for future reference?

While logged in, click on the star next to any title. This will save the review to your profile page. You can view your profile by selecting the icon with your username in the top-right.

Bookmarking has been available for a while now, but now you can create your own folders to organize your bookmarks into as many lists as you want. You can even print these lists or export their data.

Need to find a handful of titles on a certain topic? Create a new folder and move your bookmarks to it. The next time you need to compile a list, your old bookmarks will remain separate. Using this new tool, you can use CTREX to manage your research more flexibly.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We're always looking for ways to improve the CTREX experience.

Minecraft meets Raspberry Pi (plus an assortment of wood, a 7 inch screen, wires and switches) with Piper Toolbox, a DIY kit that requires (and celebrates) assembly.

You can use the physical electronics to control a buggy, as you drive through a leveled set of challenges in a Minecraft world. The problems require physcially assembling electronic parts.

Contents of the kit include a 7 inch LCD display, a power supply, and an assortment of electronics. After the kit is assembled, you see an adventure map in Minecraft on the LCD screen. Tutorials help you with the building process, and you get power-ups and abilities in the game.

Created by Shree Bose and Mark Pavlyukovskyy, a Piper kit was initially funded by a Kickstarter campaign.
