All gifts can be presented (pun intended) at Anthill HQ. If you’re stuck for ideas of what to get me, here’s a suggestion.
It looks like a retro lamp from the 1950s. You know, the ones that vintage stores sell for about $400. But, this is no ordinary lamp.
Behaving more like the animated lamp that is the Pixar branding, this is a lamp that is ‘alive’. Pinokio, or Lamp, is a remarkable exploration between the expressive and behavioural potential of robotic computing. Lamp is aware of its environment, people and does not like to be switched off.
And, I think I want one. I can see massive potential as a toy to freak the hell out of any passing cat.
