From BEAM Robotics Wiki
- A term used when referring to any person that enjoys building BEAM robots and other BEAM based circuits.
Many BEAMers have set up their own BEAM related websites. This Wiki is a good example of a site that was established by a BEAMer, in this case Marcus Nowotny. And of course the material found here has been created, provided and/or improved by BEAMers.
First, a few BEAMers of special significance.
THE FOUNDING FATHER of BEAM Robotics and the man to whom each and every BEAMer owes a debt of gratitude and thanks.
He gave us all a different and better way of turning our dreams of building robots into a reality.
 The Original BEAM Heretic
Always ready to don his flame retardant suit and challenge BEAM orthodoxy; John has kept us BEAMers honest and on our toes by challenging claims that he believes are unfounded, unproven and given to much credibility.
- Regularly provided assistance to other BEAMers
- Written significant articles or tutorials that have clarified certain BEAM principles, concepts or techniques.
- Developed a significant BEAM robots, circuits or mechanisms
- Bruce Robinson
- Craig Maynard
- David Hrynkiw
- Eric Seale - aka Conan the Librarian
- Grant McKee
- Ian Bernstein
- John A. deVries II
- Mark Tilden
- Wilf Rigter
A BEAM Contributor is someone who has created a BEAM robot, circuit or Mechanism that proven to be very useful, or inspired, other BEAMers in some way. These people may not consider themselves to be Master BEAMer, but their contributions to BEAM robotics is no less significant.

But Droidmaker has posted most of the information from that site to the BEAM Wiki.

These are individual who are or have been involved in building robots or doing research that can be applied to robotics, which although not specifically BEAM in the purest sense of the term, their robots and research represent concepts and techniques that are similar to BEAM in some way, or that might inspire new ideas and solutions, or potentially useful to designers and builders of BEAM robots and circuits.
