Turn On Your Love Light, Let It Shine On Me

Meet the Love Light. He only wants to be close to you.

I really enjoyed our discussion the other day of using emotive properties to elicit response from a user and wanted to explore it. In essence what I have here is two LEDs hooked up to a distance sensor, but he’s so much more than that. When he gets closer to an object, he lights up more and gets happier because he is better fulfilling his purpose in life: to light stuff up for you. So the closer he is to you, the happier he is. Now, yes, you can trick him by putting him in front of an object, but you’d have to be the one to deal with the guilt of tricking such a helpless creature who has nothing but love for you.


he also loves pizza
