Real or Fake? Diminish or Augment? Computainal Displays give people new perception of real life.
A video conferencing system utilizing Kinect and Diminished Reality.
Kinected Conference project in the context of reacher interactivity.
I believe one of the biggest contribution that the Interacive technology can make is to add fun to real life. Though design, rather than duplicating what can be done in physical world into the virtual world, we can create experience that never existed before
Tap Dance Bot
Reconfigurable, Adjustable tap dancing robots.
It is to foster both co-located and remote collaborative experiences by using actual rope to connect players remotely.
PingPong++ Application: Happy Birthday; Breaking Blocks.
Use body to actuate a Kungfu Panda and creat Kungfu movie in real time.
We are trying to make a full use of tangible interface in public places, especially for charity occasion.
SimPM is a 3D virtual world learning application for project management knowledge learning
My interests of digital fabrication starts from MIT course MAS863: "How to Make Almost Anything". I documented all the assignments for each week down here. MAS863 was taught by Neil Gershfiled, the director of Center of Bits and Atom, together with over 10 teaching assisstant, and over 10 technical guest speakers cross the term. It's a class to teach you nearlly all kinds of fabrication tools, it's a class to show you how to use, hack, design and make friends with machines, it's a class to tell you what MIT course means by consuming 24 hours a day, it's a class you will never forget.
Some userful links: Tools List at CBA FabLab; FabLab Inventory for all electronical parts being used in the class; tutorials on machine control and fab skills; fabModule writtern by Neil to control various machines(laser cutter, ronald modela, shopbot, etc); fabClass documentation page.

Review of the FabLab
It has been a great learning experience. Now I am able to use any tools!
Quiting from Medical School and starting a new design major, I spent years to learn the basic design skills and design thinking in my early college years. I chose 7 from countless works, show some of my experience in industrial/graphic/concept design. I was fasinated by attending various Design Concept competition for a while, including iF and reddot. The tools I used range from 3D software, web editing, graphic design software, to video editing.
