Your Own Pet Lamp, The "Tvor" [Video]

Okay, so maybe the "Tvor" isn't actually a "pet lamp" but it does have the ability to seek out dark areas of a room and point light in that direction, automatically. The only problem with that is once it directs light into that area, the areas around it are now dark, so the thing just wonders around in an endless mission to light everything up. Hell, if they would just ditch the directional lighting AI and add remote control compatibility, the lamp could be pretty awesome. Damn, I can see the potential! I mean, it looks so awesome doesn't it? I want one!
