B.E.A.M Robotics 'S version

Apostrophy'S present B.E.A.M Robotics series. Switcher Sapiens, Motorize Sapiens, Managtic Sapiens, and Solar Sapiens.

Biology Electronic Aesthetic Mechanic or BEAM Robot is small robot produced from electronic recycle material. There are four items with various interactive functions as magnetic, switcher, motorize, solar cell and glow in the dark.

The word "beam" in BEAM robotics is an acronym for Biology, Electronics, Aesthetics, and Mechanics. This is a term that refers to a style of robotics that primarily uses simple analogue circuits, such as comparators, instead of a microprocessor in order to produce an unusually simple design (in comparison to traditional mobile robots) that trades flexibility for robustness and efficiency in performing the task for which it was designed. Exceptions to the convention of using only analog electronics do exist and these are often colloquially referred to as "mutants".
The basic BEAM principles focus on a stimulus-response based ability within a machine. The underlying mechanism was invented by Mark W. Tilden where the circuit (or a Nv net of Nv neurons) is used to simulate biological neuron behaviours. Some similar research was previously done by Ed Rietman in 'Experiments In Artificial Neural Networks'. Tilden's circuit is often compared to a shift register, but with several important features making it a useful circuit in a mobile robot.
Other rules that are included (and to varying degrees applied):

1.Use the lowest number possible of electronic elements (
"keep it simple")
Recycle and reuse technoscrap
radiant energy (such as solar power)
