WHEN he received acceptance letters to study at several US universities two years ago, Singaporean Derek Low began fantasising about “pimping” his dormitory room.

On Sunday, the first-year student at the University of California, Berkeley, put the finishing touches to his dream turned reality.

The result? A room fitted out with slick features such as voice-controlled lighting, automated curtains and room modes such as “party”, “romantic”, and “homework”.

A video of his room, which he named Berkeley Ridiculously Automated Dorm (Brad), went viral after he uploaded it onto his Facebook page on Monday.

As of press time, it had attracted more than 110,000 views on YouTube.
