Bot name: ???????
Description: Here is an interesting device from the workshop of Mark Tilden. This is a two degree-of-freedom head mechanism that uses a pair of powerful yellow LEDs to illuminate it's target. When it's locked on, an indicator light flashes. See the cable trailing out behind it? That's for power and sensor input into other mechanisms. Eventually, head mechanisms like this could be retrofitted onto most larger BEAM devices, like walking machines.

Bot name: Spy
Description: Now take a good look at him. Doesn't he look like Spy vs Spy. His little triangular head and black photo diode eyes make him fit the description perfectly.

Description: This is my first attempt at a light seeking, Bicore head. The hobby servo is a little clunky, but it works perfect. Best of all I have exactly $4.50 in it total.
