In what could be described as the tiniest–and cutest–attempted military coup of all time, thousands of armed soldiers stormed the Infinite Corridor on Wednesday, December 14, 2011. Fortunately for MIT, these soldiers were of the miniature, plastic, and stationary variety and their corridor-long presence was more hack than attack.
The green and white soldiers formed a variety of shapes, ranging from messages and greetings to equations and design.
What’s your take? Is there an underlining meaning behind the hack? Is it connected to the announcement of the Iraq War’s formal shutdown? Let us know in the comments below, or leave us a note on Facebook.
