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 a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
