Time for Some Hacking!

I have been pretty down recently because rather than building awesome things, I’ve been writing tons of college and scholarship applications. But, that all paid off just a few days ago when I found out that I had been accepted to MIT!

I have been feeling pretty down recently because rather than building awesome things, I’ve been writing tons of college and scholarship applications. But, that all paid off just a few days ago when I found out that I had been accepted to MIT! About a week after this I received a shiny cylinder in the mail: the hallowed MIT acceptance letter bearing tube. I opened it up, and found this inside.

First of all, isn’t that poster awesome? Along with this poster was a relavant invitation: MIT apparently wants all accepted students to hack (hack as in make something cool out of, not maliciously break into a computer system) their tubes in whatever way they can, and submit the hacks to http://hackthetubes.mitadmissions.org. Anyway, the gears in my head have been turning, and I think I’m going to turn this tube into an autonomous robot that can navigate its environment using data from a sharp IR rangefinder. I’ll keep the website updated with how exactly I’m going to do this in the days to come.

In other news, I am still working on cleaning reactor MK. IV’s vacuum chamber, and I hope to have plasma in the chamber soon.
