Kick-Ass Automated Berkeley Dorm Violates College Rules

Earlier this week we showed you the inside of Derek Low’s insanely automated college room. Sadly, the draconian forces that be at Berkeley are calling Low in to a judicial hearing because his room violates their housing policy.

In his own words, Low spent “three months and several hundred dollars” tweaking his room, and now some academics have decided he can’t have fun any more. How pathetic.

Still, Low doesn’t seem too concerned. He’s planning to move out and get himself a personal apartment in the next two weeks. Take that, Berkeley. [Innovation News Daily via Venture Beat]
