The world for hobbyist and enthusiast developers just got a little more interesting today with the announcement that Microsoft's getting into robotics. Robotics Studio is a development tool designed to provide a uniform and consistent way to program robots including a visual design surface to model robotics programming whether your need is for work, (like Kuka's industrial robots) or for fun (like the Lego NXT).  The programming model uses the concurrency and coordination runtime (CCR) and you can program robots in VB, C#, C++, or even browser JavaScript.  

We'll definitely be adding more Robotics Studio content to Coding4Fun in the future
