Pinokio‘ looks like Pixar’s lamp and acts like a little pet, following and responding to human faces using Arduino and a webcam. As The Creators Project notes, the animatronic lamp is imbued with emotional characteristics and is aware of its environment. It was created by Shanshan Zhou, Adam Ben-Dror, and Joss Doggett.

Pinokio, which takes the form of an anglepoise desk lamp, is an exploration into the expressive and behavioural potentials of robotic computing. It shares many traits possessed by animals, generating a range of emotional sympathies. The lamp tries to ‘understand’ humans, responds with introvert (folding) or extrovert (stretching out) actions, and doesn’t like to be switched off. You can see it in action in the video below:
