Awww man, now the bots gotta be industrial-strength too?
Hey, it's just a cheap AOL CDROM on wheels. Really.
Actually, I'm not too sure about IR distance sensors,
anyways, but eveybody has one, so .....
I figure the bumpers and ultrasonics will be more fun.

[what! the whole bot doesn't cost $12]. Hmmm, how to use
one IR sensor for distance ranging, backgnd illumination
measuring, TV remote pickup, blinking hello, talking
IrDA to a Palm pilot, sensing homing beacons, and navigation
measurements on the moon and the sun ..... and only use 5
components besides. Not so hard.
