YouTube - MøBot: DeLeon II [drawbot]
"Newest evolution in the DrawBot series. This video demonstrates the new stylus arm design as well as sets DeLeon on task to begin drawing. I'm inclined to return to the wheel-based system for mobility as it is much more accurate. I really like the the relationship to crop-circles. I think this is starting to go somewhere."

4 (More) Tools for Teaching Kids to Code
"We wrote a story earlier this fall with 4 suggestions for some of our favorite programming tools aimed at kids. And that list is worth repeating: the graphical programming language Scratch, the programmable robotics of Lego Mindstorms, the 3D programming environment Alice, and the Android App Inventor.

But in the spirit of National Computer Education Week and the hopes that we can encourage more kids not just to use technology but to build technology, here's a list of 4 more: Kodu, Small Basic, Arduino, and Squeak"
