After seeing one of these wooden string toys, I had a thought on a possible solution for the stand of the lamp. For a fluid and more natural (human) motion to the lamp, the stand could be set up as a spine with taut strings running through it. The image below shows what I am trying to describe.
A series of 6 connected blocks at 15 degrees with a string attached to a servo below would give a full 90 degree range of motion. With fine tuning it would be possible to give it a larger range of motion as well as moving side to side to a limited range.This would make the lamp feel more alive as the whole body moves when it does which is the goal of the project.
