This is one of the B.E.A.M robots that i have build as an enthusiast. It is named quickly because it can be made quickly with simple parts and is easy to construct. The Robot is a Photovore, i.e, lightseeker and it's main component is the LM386 chip. It is a simple 8 DIP chip that can be used to drive small motor loads. It also needs a 100k variable resistor as sensitivity measure.With the variable resistor (100k) you have to adjust it's behavior. I had to turn it almost to one side.
It has two LDRs ( light dependant resistors) as it's EYES and two 3v electric motors. The power source is 9v battery. You can use a 9v Nimh battery pack as well.The locomotion is achieved by the slant positions of the motors with their shaft in constant contact with a smooth surface. The rear can have a bead plugged in a wire at the back for rear support or you can leave it bare at the back because the PCB is pretty smooth.

Till then, HAPPY Roboteering!!!
