    Uh… Did they just “discover” BEAM robotics, or what?  My favorite is still the one I built from a kit about 10 years ago.  It uses a curved PCB as a body, and has two pager motors and a couple of photo-transistors.  It automatically moves toward the brightest light source.  It’s pretty amazing to watch it wander across the deck in the sunlight, carefully skirting around shadows and obstacles (it has feeler switches, too).
