Pinokio by Shanshan ZhouAdam Ben-Dror and Joss Doggett is an exploration into the expressive and behavioural potentials of robotic computing. Customized computer code and electronic circuit design imbues Lamp with the ability to be aware of its environment, especially people, and to expresses a dynamic range of behaviour. As it negotiates its world, we the human audience can see that Lamp shares many traits possessed by animals, generating a range of emotional sympathies. In the end we may ask: Is Pinokio only a lamp? – a useful machine? Perhaps we should put the book aside and meet a new friend.”

Therefore, it is an aspect of the present invention to provide a better and more improved status LED indicator. It is another aspect of the invention to provide a sleep-mode indicator for an electronic device such as a laptop computer that the indicator generates a visually appealing blinking pattern to the users. It is another aspect of the present invention to provide a LED blinking pattern along with varied intensity that in combination mimics the rhythm of breathing. It is yet another aspect of the present invention to provide an electrical apparatus that generates a sleep-mode indicator blinking pattern based on a sinusoidal function using PWM (pulse width modulation) designs.

Lotus Dome by Studio Roosegaarde is a living dome made out of hundreds of ultra-light aluminium flowers that fold open in response to human behavior. When approached, the big silver dome lights up and opens its flowers. Its behavior moves from soft breathing to a more dynamic mood when more people interact. The light slowly follows people, creating an interactive play of light and shadow.
