Meet Lamp.

an apparently a regular lamp inspired on the lamp from Pixar’s Luxo Jr. short film, it’s creators gave this particular lamp a life-like twist. Lamp is in fact a little robot, developed as a class project at the Victoria University of Wellington. Lamp uses six servo motors driven by an Arduino to give the inanimate object the ability to move as if it’s alive. There is no light unfortunately, as the bulb has now in fact the “eye” through which Lamp interacts with the world.

It’s impressively alive.
