Description

The Photopopper Photovore utilizes very small high-efficiency motors in combination with elegant circuitry to make a very active solar powered robot capable of covering a meter (3.3 feet) distance in under a minute!

This Photovore is a capable little robot that is powered entirely by solar energy, has light-sensing directional optics (eyes), and a pair of obstacle avoidance sensors. The pair of infrared detectors on the robot give it a very directed phototropic or light-seeking behavior, making it trace outlines around shadows, and be attracted to the brightest sources of light.

The Photopopper Photovore 5.0 uses new “Miller Engine” technology to make a very dynamic light-seeking & obstacle-avoiding robot. All components necessary for the Photopopper are in the kit, including a high-quality printed circuit board, optics, motors, and a complete 12-page instruction manual with over 26 illustrations and images. The BEAM Photopopper Photovore kit is designed to be a straight-forward kit to assemble and tune but does require fundamental soldering skills and hand-tool abilities to complete successfully.

(If you’re brand-new to BEAM and electronics in general, we suggest you try the SolarSpeeder Kit first).
