The Completely Awesome Robotic Desklamp Experiment

Five computer-controlled robotic desk lamps with custom electronics, including a 10 watt RGB LED controller.

Software can choreograph 35 degrees of freedom (each one of 5 lamps has four servo joints as well as lamp color, represented as hue, saturation, and value), and can be manually controlled by a joystick or automatically.

More details can be found here: Robotic Desklamps at the Maker Faire
