Will the robot fit under the object?
:param obj_height: clearance height of the object (m)

Print the color of the robot in a string

Increase the robot height by 1 cm
:return: None

# Using the class
# Create a new robot:
my_roomba = Robot('roomba', 'blue')
# Access different fields in the Robot object:
print my_roomba.color
print my_roomba.height
# Call object methods:
my_roomba.fits_under(0.05) # -> False
my_roomba.fits_under(1.0) # -> True
# Some methods don't return anything
my_roomba.say_color() # Prints "Beep boop, I'm blue"
# Methods can modify (mutate) the object (with or without returning something)
my_roomba.height # -> 0.07
my_roomba.grow() # Changes height but doesn't return anything
my_roomba.height # -> 0.08
