This is my version of a color changing chameleon lamp. You can buy them but I wanted to see if I could do it. I'm using a color sensor made from a light dependant resistor, a RGB led and a Picaxe 18m2. The Picaxe also drives another RGB led for the color output. 
The chameleon is pretty crappy as far as papercraft goes, but I had to make it like that so the light would diffuse through the head and tail. Still not completely happy with it because you can see the shadow of the electronics in the base. Still, the color sensing works ok.
