Pixar's animated lamp, but real

Physical engineering students created a real-life freaking Luxo, the lamp that launched Pixar and its logo (http://www.ben-dror.com/index.php/projects/lamp/). "Pinokio" has an Arduino processor, servos, a webcam, and a mechanical Iris.

It's really nifty, cute, and clever—until you realize that it won't let you shut it down. Watch the video and see what I mean.
