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.

Teaches: Programming, robotics, creativity
This snap together robotics kit that costs a lot -- but also does a lot. Mabot (My Robot) was shown at CES 2019, and is scheduled to be released in the USA as another entry into the crowded snap together and program robotics category.

The round parts are impressive -- inspired by the functions of a human body. There's a brain (with the controller and ability to communicate with a tablet via bluetooth), joints (round joint/motors for motion), eyes and ears (sensors for light and sound), and muscles (lithium-ion batteries that can be recharged with a standard USB-mini plug). Different connectors snap into the round parts to give the kit the ability to connect with standard-sized LEGO blocks. There are two apps for controlling or programming your projects. In the demonstration, the apps worked on iOS devices. No firm release date for the USA was provided. This kit is not cheap -- at $850, it is out of range for many. Keep your eye on this one.
