ok im made my choice that it is going to be based on house hold cleaning. Its going to have many functions, and a programmable intereface so it does the job for you (tell me if im getting to in depth hehe).. Its going to have extendable arms that are also flexible that can have many different attachments like cleaner bottles, dusters etc. It also is equiped with a vaccume in the front. I still brainstorming what it might look like but i should have a rough sketch here pretty soon...

3-point lighting is very commen technique to light objects in your scene. Check out the following tutorials:

http://www.andrew-whitehurst.net/3point.html (uses light-linking but is not described in the tutorial)
