The "Tvor" lamp by Czech design student Jindrich Vodicka, is another example of the weird and wonderful creations to emerge from the maturing design scene in central and eastern Europe in recent years.
This bizarre concept, uses sensors and an Adruino programme to scan its immediate environment to locate the darkest patch—which it then leaps into action to flood with light. Unfortunately, the creation is "doomed to endless travel" as it eagerness to illuminate only transfers the darkness to another part of the room—starting the whole process again.
