BEAMbots that move around using separate magnets and electromagnet coils

Magbots are desk-bound (non-vehicular) BEAMbots that use electromagnetic fields to move themselves around (this can also include critters that use multimeter movements to move wings). A number of very beautiful, but electronically simple (being essentially just solar engines) Magbots have been built to date.
