I'm interested in designing and prototyping everyday objects in order to enrich our living experience and make technology connect people's emotion and feelings.
I'm in the Ph.D Program of Media Arts and Sciences at the Media Lab, MIT. Now I'm working with Prof. Ted Selker, Ernesto Arroyo and Matthew Hockenberry in the Context-Aware Computing Group and Counter Intelligence Special Interest Group.

Nightmarket 2007 is a design and prototyping workshop for creative designers and skilled practitioners. Since the Nightmarket 2006 workshop and Asia Reality 2005 workshop, we experienced great creativity and energy of graduate and undergraduate students in Taiwan. It made us to think about how to extend the passion of creating Taiwanese interactive arts installations. Why not we do it again? We found that providing a resourceful environment and gathering interdisciplinary people are the keys for a successful workshop and great inventions.
When watching TV, a person can pick up the HiTV soft ball to toss around or throw the ball to hit the TV when s/he doesn't like the character or contents in the TV. As the ball hits the TV, the character inside the TV program will get visually distorted and scream. With HiTV, the interaction and feedback of the TV experience can be greatly enhanced by considering the affective actions of TV audience and fulfilling their expectation from emotional reaction.
We present a software toolkit that allows graphic designers to make camera-based interactive environments in a short period of time without experience in user interface design or machine vision. The Attention Meter, a vision-based input toolkit, gives users an analysis of faces found in a given image stream, including facial expression, body motion, and attentive activities. This data is fed to a text file that can be easily understood by humans and programs alike.
Lover’s Cups explore the idea of sharing feelings of drinking between two people in different places by using cups as communication interfaces of drinking. Two cups are connected with each other, and glow when your lover is drinking.
