Luminar Robotic Lamp Packs a Projector in Its Light Socket

The way things are shaping up these days, it seems robots will soon be everywhere. My guess is that it won’t take long before they just decide to take over and we’ll be living in a Terminator-like world. In keeping with that plan, MIT researcher Natan Linder has just created a desk lamp that works as a sort of robotic assistant.

The LuminAR robotic lamp is pretty awesome because it can move around, and project information on any surface. The lightbulb module is basically a computer with an LCD pico-projector, allowing you to interact with apps and the Internet almost anywhere you can project light.

It not only projects images, but allows you to tap and type. While I don’t know how necessary the robotic lamp really is, the fact that the LuminAR can be set into a standard lightbulb socket does look pretty cool.
