Become an intern, prank a co-worker

We spotted this video of an office prank that happened here a couple of years ago. It's one of our favorites and features modular CKbots from the ModLab at Penn, a ping pong robot, and a trap door concealed in a ceiling tile. We love modular robots and this shows off why -- need a robot to lift open your trap door in the ceiling so that your ping pong robot has a clear line of fire? No problem! 

While they weren't busy figuring out how to surprise attack their mentor, interns from the ModLab have also done a lot of fun "real" projects, like breaking eggs, quick-change end effectors for the PR2, and squeezing juice bottles. If you think these sorts of robot pranks and projects are fun, perhaps you should check out our intern program.
