微光泡泡



微光泡泡為我最近發表的產品
已經在當代美術館的創意市集進行試賣

當你用雙手握住他的時候,他可以發出微量的光線。
你也可以把罐子打開,向風扇吹口氣。吹出閃閃的光線。

該產品目前發展兩種版本。
一種為自行組裝的材料包,讓有興趣享受組裝樂趣的同好DIY。另一種為組裝好的產品。

Arduino?

對程式很粗淺的我
一開始選擇BasicStamp練習
但是,組件很貴、沒錢實在買不起
Arduino有許多優點: 像是C的語法、以及可以與Processing整合、最好不過了

我花了一些時間把B的套件買齊了部份,他網站整理的很好,很多感測器的最佳寫法與電路資料都很清楚,
實在適合我馬上上手、對感測器掌握。

但是,最近我開始接觸Arduino,
我發現他並不難,而且很值得 研究,
應用上更廣,適合玩互動的人學習,

ID-12 or Core-12是一型RFID reader module,
Core-12的電路圖只有一個小地方與ID-12不同,性能與特性一模一樣,
Core-12只需要約680台幣 較ID-12 1000元的價格便宜,
Arduino的晶片網路上找到只要120/塊 的單價,
該花時間 研究一下了:)

本裝置使用的媒材如下:
可動式結構(採用台灣科技大學建築系施宣光教授之專利接頭)、多人注意力感測器(採用MIT MediaLab研發的Attention Meter軟體)、記憶合金彈簧(Niti-spring)、Basic Stamp單晶片控制
This project was Selected in 3rd Digital Art Festival Taipei 2008
太棒了,最近收到通知入選了台北數位藝術節中的互動裝置類、以及KT科藝獎。
9月12日-11月19日會在當代藝術館展出。歡迎大家來參觀:)

我很喜歡含羞草,他會害羞。我可以和他一玩再玩,看著他害羞的反應。
我不喜歡機器人生硬的表情,但是我喜歡微笑的表情、會笑的眼睛。
我喜歡小貓、小動物,因為我可以跟他玩、可以看著他害羞、無辜的表情。
我喜歡動手做東西,把他做出來,陪我一起遊戲。

Spatial Sketch Support Architecture Design

my project done at March, 2008
Even nowadays CAD applications contain high capacity modeling functions, but it still couldn't replace the traditional design media (such as paper sketching and model making), which could demonstrate the craft sense extended from our hand skills. Using traditional design media, designers are able to extend their bodily dynamic expression and reveal handicraft sense in design. Therefore, this research is to propose CAD applications can redound on designer's perspectives to providing the opportunities in expressing characteristics of fine art. Spatial sketch system (SS-System) demonstrates a new framework of applying hands in virtual modeling. SS-System solves the problems: 1) Unable to freely execute the spatial ideas; 2) Getting lost from the original design ideas, while manipulating computer-aided design. SS-System helps designers in presenting their ideas rapidly and creating various associations of design prototypes during the development. The nimbleness of hands helps designers in creating the sense of craft forms.

1:1 Interior Design in mixed Augmented Reality

my project of 3D interact technique design done at April, 2008
Architecture and interior design is usually done through 2D drawings in smaller scale. The drawings are hard to be interpreted by general people. Therefore, extra design efforts are taken for the communication between the designer and their customer. In fact, the drawing in smaller scale is one kind of design method taught in traditional academy of architecture design in order to simulate the in-scale spatial design. The designer, who goes through the traditional learning process, will be capable of using 2D drawing for design thinking. Through learning and adapting to the method, the designer will be able to transform spatial ideas into spatial drawings in smaller scale.
Unfortunately, the usage of miniature 2D drawings in design process always causes the loss of design details and misses the potential opportunities inspired by the real-world reality. In this circumstance, this research will be dedicated to the 1:1 augmented reality interior design system (1:1-ARIDS) which will help users to have their design in real-world environment. 1:1-ARIDS includes two wearable devices: laser-pointer for 3D input and VR-glasses for visual displays. The combination actually helps designers in modeling and seeing design outcomes in real-time. 1:1-ARIDS is trying to enhance the communications between the designers and proprietors. And it also helps designers in expressing their design ideas more clearly by involving users into the experiential design process.

TRANS-flower

interactive architecture workshop'08

video

In this 2 days workshop, we developed a structure unit, we called "Trans-flower"
This artificial moveable structure is used the twist with force in actuator.
The concept is from the serious of: the actuator of umbrella, natural plant conformation and architecture spiral frames.












We try to combine with a servo motor enable to study the form transformations.
The servo motor is put inside transflower to firmly grasp the structure itself.
Therefore, the form transformation would be embedded with force, for making natural dynamical expression.

In this prototypes, we use hanging and standing two mode for building this transform structure. Here is coming with a fews of problems need to solving: (1) the design of degrees of freedom of joints; (2) the communication between motor torsion and mechanical act and (3) the parent and son relationships as tugging action in objects while transforming.

We develop a spatial geometry design form from square based pyramid. And then modify the joint to accept for more DOFs. By the constrains of geometry structure and a few freedom on rotations, transflower could be created an exact transform ranges. Therefore, the form changing will following the twist of force.

Two sensors are utilized in this prototype providing the ways of interaction. We utilize BasicStamp programing simple interact behavior with human to control the servo motor. IR sensor can be used to sense movement of free-hands and body passing. And the mercury switch can be used to sense shaking and the directions of the collapse. These two kinds of interaction modes provide the possibilities in future to consider the development. Adapting human living in house and transforming to any furniture, we think transflowers will be manipulated in smart house in future.
