Plen, the first robot that we ever saw that could roller skate, and then more recently skate board, has scored another first. It's been featured on the cover of the August issue of "Goods Press" magazine here in Japan. The magazine, for those readers that aren't familiar with Japanese periodicals, focuses almost exclusively on new and often unique, products about to hit the market. For the August issue, on the news stands now, they selected quite a number of new gadgets and style products, sorted them into categories, then ranked them. Plen had the honor of becoming the number 1 pick in the Hobby Category (more photos below).
