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.

Here's (yet another) snap together coding and robotics kit -- this time from Sony (Sony Global Education team).

KOOV is already available in Japan and China, and Sony is using crowd funding to expand the program to the US.

There are two kits.

The Starter Kit ($360) contains 162 blocks and 14 sensors, but no motor. So you can't build any vehicles. There are 14 KOOV recipes you can assemble, which are outlined in the free app.

The Advanced Kit ($500) contains 276 building blocks and 22 sensors allowing you to build 23 KOOV "Robot Recipes." This includes two DC motors, gears, and wheels. Testers found the process of building a model to be complicated and didactic. There's not much room for creativity.
