Observed Problem: Crowds take the nearer steps when getting out of the station and ignore the extended aisle and the steps on the other side (circled in red).

Goal: To attract people’s attention on their way out (mostly) and interact with the installation on the weak side of the aisle, so that the exit may become less crowded and people can set their mood by playing and interacting.

Approach: Friendly typography and cute graphics

Result: More people than expected chose to spend a minute to pin a paper face of emotion on the board. Most of the ones who would interact with the installation were youngsters and students

Final Project Precedent


I will continue to design my concept of Walking Cup.

This is an existing product of a digital cup by using similar  technique of my Walking Cup concept .

This is the video to show how to use Arduino weight censor.

Final Project Precedent

1. music sneaker

2. Run like me


So in my final project I decided to expand on my mashup running project. The goal I want to achieve is to help people to run in a proper way and encourage more people to join the running community.

I wanna use a motion sensor or knock sensor in Arduino to create a feedback sneaker, if the posture of the runner is not correct, it will play sound to remind the runner.

Final Projects Precedents

My goal for my final project is to create an interactive tutorial for chemistry students to understand how soap is able to breakdown grease.  I hope to accurately portray molecular level interactions and apply it to a larger context.

Inspirations for this project:

Janet Iwasa is a biologist who uses animations to create visualizations of hypotheses of molecular biology and protein interactions. This series about membrane lipids shows how dynamic lipid molecules are when forming  a spherical micelle shape. Her other animated work is featured at

Macro to micro animation of a chemical reaction happening, with the written reaction appearing below as they occur in the animation.

Inspirations for the Final


– Physical vs. Digital

– Nature as Interface
