Robotic Desk Lamp

This is a concept video featuring AUR, a robotic desk lamp developed at the Media Lab. In this video, the lamp tracks the human user illuminating the right area at the right time. The lamp also helps the user find things in the workspace by using a different color and a beam-narrowing iris to point out things.

All the functionality in this video except the "seeking" detection is currently implemented and working autonomously on the robot, using a motion capture system.

Dear Media Lab: Please contact me at jjaneri@compliancehouseinc.com at your earliest convenience as I need to obtain more information regarding the tracking robotic lamp.

Kindest Regards, John Janeri
