I have included this page for those not familiar with the various types of BEAM robots.  Next to each picture is a genre of BEAM along with a short description to make navigating the site more enjoyable.  Please take your time and of course, enjoy yourself.

Photovores are small, light tracking, robots.  Generally they are solar powered and are quite capable little bots.  One of the most popular forms of BEAM, photovores are very interesting to watch, especially in large groups.

Pummers are, as I like to say, the plant life of BEAM.  They store the suns energy in either rechargeable batteries or capacitors during the day and flash at night.  They start off strong and fade as the night progresses, only to charge again the next day.

Turbots are incredible robots that, instead of legs or wheels, use flagellum for locomotion.  They are very lifelike and have the ability to traverse terrain with relatively large obstacles.  Turbots also have a nasty habit of entangling with other robots and slowly pulling them to pieces.

Walkers alone, due to their overwhelming popularity, are probably responsible for the huge following of BEAM to this day.  By using carefully designed legs and some adaptive circuitry, they are able to walk and react in many real-world environments. 

Solarollers make up one of the simpler genres of BEAM robotics.  They do nothing more than store solar energy and, when full, release it quickly to one or motors, propelling themselves forward.  Although simple, solarollers can be quite fun and are surprisingly fast.

A head's function is to seek out some desired source (light, dark, motion, heat, etc.) and, by rotating about one or more axis, track it as effectively as possible.  In some applications, such as exploration, heads collect data for a larger mobile robotic platforms.

Not too much to be said here.  Miscellaneous robots are well..... robots that do not fit under any of the aforementioned genres.  These robots can be almost anything, allowing for some interesting and artistic designs.
