The proximity sensor Bit emits a beam of infrared light which the human eye can not see. When this beam of light hits an object, it gets reflected back on a small sensor on your Bit. More light reflecting back to the sensor equates to a stronger signal sent by the proximity sensor Bit to the output Bits that follow it to the right.
