Hardware Experiments

2013 - present

These are a compilation of experiments throughout the years across different mediums.

Hardware Experiments

The Selfie Stick Bit is a Bit that I prototyped which took the underlying technology of a selfie stick and repurposed it for littleBits. The functionality was later replicated in the BLE Bit which was released a year later.

This is a prototype of a wearable radiation sensor that electrocutes you when there is radiation nearby. Ouch! Developed with Munehiko Sato from the Camera Culture Group at the MIT Media Lab.

Hardware Experiments

A closeup of how the radiation sensor is worn on the body.

This is a protoype of a robotic walker that I created with Barbara Yang, Karthik Desingh, Diane Schulze, Xiyao Xu, and Zhiqiang Sui. My main contribution was the prototyping of the plywood exterior and the mechanism that allowed the motors to drive the wheels.

This is one of the modes of the robotic walker, where it can serve as an assistant or monitor a patient's activity in a medical context. Illustration by Barbara Yang

Hardware Experiments

This is a device called trypod which is designed to help teachers document project-based learning in the classroom.

This is a closeup of how a cellphone attaches to the frame.

Hardware Experiments

Model of a surveillance camera.

This is a procedurally generated vase that I developed during an internship at 3D Systems in San Francisco.

Hardware Experiments

This is a modular furniture system I designed that takes advantage of the structural qualities of a thermoplastic fiber composite.

This is a custom musical instrument that I designed and fabricated with Jonathan Hsiung. The butterfly joint mechanism allows the ash members to make a very pleasant clang when they hit each other.
