solar-powered BEAM bots

Look at MAKE’s latest weekend project, which are two solar-powered BEAM bots. Generally, BEAM stands for Biology, Electronics, Aesthetics, and Mechanics. From Wikipedia: “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.”
I love these two cute solar-powered creature bots, see the video below:
