Phototrope, phototropic

Literally, "light turning," this term is generally (if somewhat inaccurately) applied to light-seeking BEAM robots. More accurately, phototropes can either seek (photophiles) or flee (photophobes) bright sources of light.

The simplest and most common form of phototrope is the photopopper -- many are as simple as to be essentially two solarrollers stuck together.
