Given that nations worldwide
themselves to the teeth
with these silicon-based life forms, it only makes sense that the citizenry will need widespread and cheaper access to robot parts. Thankfully, we just found out that Revell, the big name behind a lot of R/C and other plastic model kits, is partnering with Innovation First to create the next Vex Robotics System
. According to the press release, IF will retain technical design, engineering development and manufacturing, while Revell will bring its sales, marketing and distribution talents to the table -- their powers combined will surely create the Transformers of hobbyist companies. Maybe this deal means that the Engadget robot army will finally get built just a little bit faster.
