Also I can see this in a steampunk laboratory following orders and giving more light when the mad scientist needs it, and shooing away when he doesn't need them.

Its cool, and I would put it on my shelf.

I would go to bed and be like....

"...Its looking at me. Is it moving? ....."

And just be up all night, wondering if I will make it through the terror.

I mean, it is really cool, but I couldn't have it. I'd get to creeped out.
