Guy Hoffman of MIT's Robotic Life Research group is merging robots and the art of acting by animating a robotic desk lamp named AUR with a little inspiration from a 5-axis robot arm. AUR's debut is a play at MIT's Dramashop, touted as the first step in an effort towards a fully autonomous robotic actor. Video shows the lamp following a human's lighting needs in a dimly lit room.
