What an outrage! This is an intolerable prank for several reasons. (1) Where's the coffee? How do you expect any self-respecting engineer to work without coffee? A small hole in the case, a tube to sip through, viola! coffee is served. (2) How did you light this box up? In the visible? Sure. The entire design should have been self-illuminated in the infrared. You could easily have supplied an old gen 1 IR viewer with a partially used battery. This would have placed a nice time-constraint on the problem. (3) Was no soldering or assembly language programming required? Amateurs...
This is beyond nerdy; this is disturbing. Read a (non-technical) book; go to a movie; get outside, take a hike maybe; kiss somebody. Life is too short to devote this much time and energy to something so useless.
Sounds like something that would be common in a Fraternity! I hope the lad got out in time to get married. Is there any connection between being trapped in the box and getting married? Just wondering.. :})

I applaud their effort and ingenious thinking.... BRAVO, and Murat Ozkan, my HatOff to you.
A good friend is hard to find and great to keep.
