This is GAFFER the robot and he was created by Van Dusen Clockworks, as part of their Minutemen Series. Yes, he is a robot, but he is also a real working clock. Affectionately named after the lighting specialist in the film and movie industry, this robot is wired to spotlight anything you give him. The movie camera head swivels and pivots on a knuckle from a vintage tripod. The articulated arms allow you to direct the LED spotlights in any direction, allowing you to use as a decorative light or a functional lamp. His square metal body was once an old battery operated lantern that is supported by steel tube legs and bulbous shaped feet.
