Innovation First intros VEX RCR Mini, WiFi control system

Innovation First sure looks to be keeping up a steady pace with its VEX robotics system, with the company now following up its recently released ROBOTC programming kit
with its new VEX RCR Mini kit and a new WiFi control system. The
former, as you've no doubt surmised, is a smaller and less expensive
version of Innovation's standard VEX system, which it thinks will be
particularly appealing to students from elementary school on up. The
VEX WiFi Control System, on the other hand, will apparently work with
all VEX robots, and somewhat ominously, allows for "simultaneous
operation of hundreds of robots wirelessly." No word on a price or
exact release date for the WiFi system just yet, but you can look for
the VEX RCR Mini to be available this August for "less than $100."
