A Czechoslovakian design student has designed a robot to help light up dark areas, wherever it is. Called Tvor, “the intelligent lighting creature”, it does its job by constantly looking for dark areas in any space and shining its light in that direction. After a while, it moves on to the next dark spot it finds and shines its light there again. How this is can be useful is beyond my grasp, since once it leaves a dark area, it becomes dark again. But the design student managed to snag the Czech National Award for Student Design 2010 with this robot, so it must have its uses. Check out a video of it in action here.
