Many modern robots can do amazing things. The Robolamps, on the other hand, can only offer low-lighting in your bedroom. But they look pretty amazing.
Using plumbing pipes and electrical fittings made from hard plastic, artist Robert Matysiak turned up this huge collection of badass-looking nightstand fixtures. Designed and assembled over the last two years, he's now ready to show them off the world. And, man, I want this everywhere in my house.
They don't look all that complicated either. Using what looks like standard fare - such as plastic pipes, elbow joints and electrical boxes - from the local hardware store, the Croatian artist simply assembled the various parts into individual Robolamps, turning up a visually-delightful army of robot characters that look like they came straight out of a movie.
Each of the bulb-headed robots are configured differently, varying both in looks and sizes. They range from 6 to 8 inches tall and come with articulated joints, so you can arrange them in different positions. He uses replaceable colored bulbs as the head for effect. According to the artist, there's a switch in there somewhere (different parts for different robots), with a plug attached to about two meters of cable.
