Livin’ la vida automatic!


A student’s whacky experiment in automated dorm living.
It’s called the B.R.A.D. (Berkeley Ridiculously Automated Dorm).

This goes beyond clapping to turn off the lights folks.  This is Derek Low’s dorm room at the University of California at Berkeley.  He’s transformed the room with motion sensors, remote switches and apps to manage his room’s settings.

Now, did he spend a bunch of time putting this all together instead of studying and doing his homework? Ha!

The romantic mode setting and emergency party mode setting are hilarious!
