mindSet using small muscle motors not only reveals intuitive gestures, but also implements these gestures based on popular depth camera system. According to our testing of mindSet, users are able to successfully execute commands via gestures in a shorter time and with more comfortable feelings than that of convention ways.
This research introduce an actual government funded project of ASUS focusing on developing an electronic platform for a special consumer group, Tzu Chi. By going through a series of user experience design and research process, we eventually retrieve some valuable points which could be beneficial to the design of future e-reader.
We are very happy that Actuating Geometry in Design Workshop has finished successfully!! In order to demonstrate the concept and signal transformation from physical simulation in Grasshopper to geometry calculation in Processing to physical actuation via Arduino, TsungHsien, Shih Yuan and I had a pre-workshop a week before the actual workshop and built the Tangible Surface example!
Although it’s about two months since the end of the 2011 Taiwan Designers’ Week, Tangible Pixels project is still far from done. There are many research issues and implementation techniques that require more time to address and discovery after all. However, a video consisted of previous working demos and collected images is still made as a way to share the development and exhibition processes with you. Hope you can enjoy it and have clear understanding of this project!!
In this project, we design and make 438 flower robots for the 2010 Taipei International Flora Expo. Our goal is to make each individual equip identical minimum rules but achieve highly intelligent behaviors. Hence, we adopt the idea of “Self-Organization” to realize…
Adaptive Mouse (AM) consists of a smart material which is deformable and is capable of recognizing the deformation. The deformation provides perfect and comfortable ergonomic shape for users’ diverse hand gestures. The smart material itself could also dynamically activate…
