I have recently been informed that the rather fantastic (but expensive) Radio Shack VEX may about to be discontinued, and as a result, is actually being sold at half price discounts on the Radio Shack website.

If you don’t know what the VeX is, it is like the Lego Mindstorms Robotic Invention System, but with Meccano like (that’s Erector to US readers) pieces, a much more extensible and flexible.
