Has anyone made a robot that looks and acts like the Pixar lamp?

I think that it should be able to hop up and down a bit, and look at people when they enter its range of vision. Any ideas as to how to make something like this?

It's amazing what you can find with search engines nowadays. They've really come a long way since 2011, when lazy people had to post questions and wait for someone else to do the work for them.

There is an Instructable for making a proper-looking Luxo Jr. https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-PIXAR-Luxo-Jr-Lamp/, but it's not robotic (found by putting "pixar lamp robot" into the Instructables search box).

Gizmodo had an article on one you can buy, and a real robotic one built at MIT (found by putting "pixar lamp robot" into Google).

Thanks for the answer but was the sarcasm really necessary?
Yes. If you spend much time here, you'll find out that 90% of the questions asked here could bin answered instantly if the person would just google it.

I think there are still a lot of people who really don't know how to use keywords in as search engine.
