BRAD: Berkley Ridiculously Automated Dorm, Has Everything But a Live DJ [Video]

Combine some servo motors, motion detectors, software, and throw in a laser light show and a surround sound system for good measure, and you’ve got BRAD–an awesome and automated dorm room.

The brain child of Derek Low, a Berkley student, the dorm automation system includes automatic, remote, and voice controlled modes for sleeping, studying, romancing, and partying. If you’re looking to recreate elements of his automated room, you’re in luck. Low keeps a detailed project log for all his projects, BRAD included.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
