Solarbotics started as a company specializing in
kits based on BEAM technology, which meant building simple, effective
devices using (often) strange ways. They learned early on that the
documentation is not something to do poorly, so you'll find that
their kits come with very complete instructions with many, many photos.
Solarbotics uses quality components, and clever circuit board design to
make your build as successful as possible
