Must see – ‘romantic mode’.


Apart from the eventual goal of graduation, there’s plenty of fun things you can do while you’re a freshman at college. There’s late night study marathons, LAN parties in the computer lab, crashing fraternity ceremonies, and tying up the campus mascot.

But if you’re Derek Low, you go one step further and build the world’s most awesome automated dorm room – because you can. Featuring IR controls, motion sensors, iOS apps, as well as voice recognition, Low can control the lights and curtains in his room with a simple voice command. The room also features various modes, such as ‘Homework mode’, or our favorite – ‘Romantic mode’, complete with Elton John music and disco ball. There’s even an ‘Emergency Party Button’ that really cranks things into high gear.

Have a look at the awesome video below to check out Low’s dorm in all its glory.
