Pinokio, The Animatronic Lamp That Is Aware of Its Environment
"Using Processing, Arduino, and OpenCV, the Lamp is given an ability to be aware of its environment, and to expresses a dynamic range of behaviour. As it negotiates it’s world, we the human audience can see that Lamp shares many traits possessed by animals, generating a range of emotional sympathies. In the end we may ask: Is Lamp only a lamp? – a useful machine? Perhaps we should put the book aside and meet a new friend."
