Pinokio was created by Shanshan Zhou, Adam Ben-Dror, and Joss Doggett with Processing, an Arduino, and OpenCV.

Lamp is an exploration into the expressive and behavioural potentials of robotic computing. Customized computer code and electronic circuit design imbues Lamp with the ability to be aware of its environment, especially people, and to expresses a dynamic range of behaviour. As it negotiates its 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.
