I’ve just realised that I have neglected to link to the funniest thing I’ve ever seen on the web – the MIDAS dorm room automation system.. The guy who put this together has to be the biggest dork I’ve ever seen. The whole site is worth visiting, in particular the links to his car and garage alarm system. However, what cracks me up the most is the “Party Mode” he installed, with a big red E-Stop button to activate. What happens when activated? Observe:
Go on, play it again to savour “Feel the Energy”. My colleagues and I can only presume that he and his roommate then proceed to party alone. However, he has proof that this is not true:
We were wondering what he paid the girls. Actually, that may be unfair – maybe they’re related to him. Or perhaps they were attracted to his awesome acting skills?
I really must recommend spending some time at his site, if only to be boggled at his unique dorkishness. I admire his technical capacity, but I’m utterly baffled by the why of the whole thing…
