Dorm Room

Meet BRAD: Berkeley Ridiculously Automated Dorm

During my freshman year at UC Berkeley, I set out to create the most ridiculously automated dorm room in the school ever. Three months and several hundred dollars later, BRAD has been completed!

That party music?
Avicii – Levels & Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso – Calling W/ Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – Generation X

My screen went crazy during the strobe lights. What kind of black magic is this?
The camera records at 29.97 fps, slower than the frequency of the strobe light.

Why does the motor make my ears bleed?
It was designed to move drapes up to 35 lbs.
