MIT Party Mode, Dorm Room Automation

at 5:41 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, Computer Hacks, Crazy Hacks, Electronic Hacks, Funny Hacks

Zack Anderson and Russell Ryan over at MIT are playing hard, not sure where they find time to study. 🙂
Check out the elaborate dorm room automation system they have developed.

“What happens at 4:10 am when you have a bunch of MIT students hard at work? Naturally, they throw an instant party with their automated control system.

Since moving into my dorm this last fall, my roommate RJ Ryan and I have been working on creating the most elaborate automation system we could envision. Featuring everything from web control, voice activation, and a security system, to large continuously running information displays, electric blinds, and one-touch parties, the custom designed MIDAS Automation System has brought ease to our lives (if one doesn’t count all the time it took to actually build and program the system).”

    thats pretty cool, although Im pretty sure teachers would know if MIT students are holding parties with all that fancy equipment in plain eye sight.

    Cool. Maybe you could make it so the party button sends a text message to all of your friends’ cellphones to let them know there’s a party.
