Putting the Pixel into HullPixelBot

The idea behind HullPixelBot is that it is a roving pixel robot. From Hull. We've got the robot part working quite nicely now, with motors and wheels and everything. But we've been missing the pixel bit. So today I spent some time crafting the holders for the pixels mounts.

The plan is to have two pixels on a robot.. One on the top, directly between the two wheels. We can use this to "draw with light" and whatnot. The other pixel is mounted on the back of the robot. On the front of the robot we are going to put a light sensor so that a robot can find and follow another robot with a particular coloured pixel on the back.

I'm going to spend the next day or so fiddling with the design and printing test versions to make sure it all fits together. Exciting stuff.
