BEAM approach

BEAM is a school of robotics, starting from simple reflexes, in a 'bottoms-up' approach. The majority of BEAM robots are non-computerized (although simple CPUs can be used to drive them, in a 'horse and rider' sort of way). Unlike many traditional processor-based robots, BEAM robots are cheap, simple, and can be built by a hobbyist with basic skills in a matter of hours. Because of this, BEAM is an excellent way of getting started in robotics, and of learning about electronics.
