Future Antique Chandelier in Digital Age/ ITP 2015
Future Antique Chandelier in Digital Age is the first prototype of a concept, Future Antique of Internet of Things.
It ages and traces the users' existence by electrochemical reactions on the lamp shade according to the data the user create whenever they use the smart light.
Intro- Future Antique Chandelier in Digital Age
Future Antique Chandelier is a prototype of future hardware design, sustainable and future electronics of heirloom.
Whenever the user turn on/off the switches and user the different modes, one of the strips are oxidised automatically for a short time. (for the documentation, the oxidation is accelerated).

Networked Weather Modules
This is a connected air quality home sensor modules designed for elderly people with asthma.
The modules track temperature, humidity, pollution, dust and pollen levels. The data is presented on a user friendly display to help the user take action to improve the air quality of the home and prepare for poor air quality conditions outdoors.

The Inspiration - Natemo Weather Station
This project was inspired by user testing of the Netatmo Weather Station which gathers information on temperature, humidity and noise in one’s home through detailed graphs, but does not provide context for the information and how it is useful for what kinds of users.
This project is also inspired by similar air quality monitoring modules on the market offered by IoT companies such as Quirky’s Spotter. These modules are designed for a very general audience. We feel one of the failings of IoT products is the target audience being too general and that a specific target audience could result in a product that is more useful to users in the long term.
The User research
Our target user group is elderly people who suffer asthma condition with invisible air conditions which affects asthma attacks due to their high death rate.
The main user interaction with the modules will be a home display that will show the outdoor and indoor air conditions and alert the user visually with colors and icons if the air quality conditions are poor.
When the user receives Clear, she will follow four steps on her powered-up display to activate Clear.
All the sensors' prototyping test
Mazyfoosball is an Internet of Things project done in a class at ITP, Understanding Networks with Tom Igoes.
The main purpose of this project is to learn how network works in conjunction with programming and physical computing. My collaborator, Moon and I created a physical toy which is manipulated by mobile and web interface. Anyone can join the game without physically being with the physical object.
Mazyfoosball is a physical toy which allows users to play online interface including mobile phone, tablets and PC. This is done in collaboration with JH Moon in a class, Understanding Networks with Tom Igoe at ITP NYU.
