Using robots as anything but not as a robot is something I frequently do.😅 It's like a "creative exercise" to figure out different ways to use the components of a robot for something "useful". In that sense, and considering Otto has a nice ultrasound sensor with lights, I found useful to use Otto as a reader assistant providing me a small light to read, so I don't need to illuminate the whole room while I only need a bit of light to read a book! 

I am attaching some gif demonstration.

Hello Ivan,

As a "Smart Read Light", I would say it's basically possible, but not very practical, I think it's too dark for reading and puts too much strain on the eyes. But as an intelligent "Smart Night Light" I can very well imagine it. At least within a radius of 50 - 100cm. If the ultrasonic sensor detects movement, the Smart Night Light switches on; if no movement is detected after a certain period of time, it switches off again.

Hi René, very good! As a night light is a good option too. The main idea with this is start to find different approaches to use the Otto capabilities. As a night light it could even be better to use the ring lights! 

Thinking as a teacher, it could be a nice exercise for students to figure out these different approaches and when is better to use the lights of the ring vs ultrasonic sensor lights. 🙂 

I am attaching an image of a way that I used the ring lights for a little christmas decoration.
