Derrick Duncan and Simon Huang, University of Waterloo hackers, move a couch in the Duderstadt Center into a private work space on North Campus at the University of Michigan during MHacks 2014 in Ann Arbor, MI on September 7, 2014.
The team was adamant on getting a good night’s sleep after sleeping uncomfortably the night before. They were forced to relocate a little over an hour later after staff discovered them.

MABEL, once dubbed the world’s fasted running bipedal robot, has served her tenure as the primary research robot of U-M engineering professor Jessy Grizzle, and now sits in the biomechanics exhibit at the Chicago Field Museum.
Prof. Grizzle, a Elmer G. Gilbert Distinguished University Professor and Jerry W. and Carol L. Levin Professor of Engineering with appointments in the EECS and Mechanical Engineering departments at U-M, developed MABEL in coordination with Jonathan Hurst of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon. Grizzle is now working (again with Hurst) on MARLO, his next generation bipedal robot.
