That's just great, a robot that can turn itself back on as it's powering down. Humanity is doomed.

And the engineering students completely ignored a lamps primary function.

Without lamps, there would be no light.

albuquerquehalsey: That's a steerable camera, not a lamp.


That's strange, I could have sworn that the first part of the video clearly had the words This is a lamp.

That's really cute for about 2 mins....then I'd just want to slap it.

You know, putting an LED ring in there would probably be pretty trivial. Plus they could have it turn on automatically when the camera is too dark and say that "Lamp is afraid of the dark."

Gotta say, it is kind of scary that someone built a computer with a will to live. That's some major Cylon shiat right there.

Do you need schematics to know a cell phone when you see one? That thing's called, depending on who you ask, the useless machine, the useless box, the go away box, etc. They're all based around the same idea: a machine that turns itself off right after you turn it on. As seen here:

I was wondering why they didn't do that. The ending would have been much better with a light going on and off. Heck, four white LEDs would have been enough.

It would have been immensely more useful if it would behave like the Predator shoulder gun and shine wherever I'm looking when necessary.

There is a theory which states that if ever mods stop green-lighting repeats, Fark will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable

Could be any number of ways to make that, actually.

Have it spring-loaded to pop up and flick the switch, which powers a motor which drives the arm back against the spring's pull.

That there's many ways to do something doesn't change the concept of the device. Do you actually think the lamp in the linked video is turning itself back on? Or would it be more likely that's not actually an off switch, but a gimmick put there for a laugh? This is not a trick question.
