Haptic suit experience

Last week I went to SXSW and get a chance to experience haptic suit with 3d glasses. This suit provides vibration feedback and I have to admit that while I focused on the game, the vibration feedback is good enough to […]

Scrape From Instagram

I try to scrape images from my Instagram and manipulate them with Pillow. Following this tutorial I could easily generate an image like this: Basically what this code is calculating RGB pixel by pixel.  (sin(pi x), cos(pi xy), sin(pi y)) Then I try […]

Research – Existing Projects

16 families of Haptic Feedback: TeslaSuit: The Teslasuit is built around neuromuscular stimulation, where the conductive smart fabric delivers tiny mild electric pulses to various part of the body. Simulation: vary from wind or rain sensations to shots and touches NullSpace:  […]

TRACKING TEST

The two main function are motion tracking and haptic feedback. For motion tracking, I test: IMUs: mpu6250: This 6 DOF gyro+ accel is not stable and the gyro would shift very fast, which means it will lose it’s orientation in […]

Smart Fabric Experiment

Turn leather into touchpad by using conductive thread.   In this fabric, I sewed conductive thread on it. It’s hardly to see it, but finger can sense it. And I put vibrater under it, so every time it sense touch, […]

Training your spacial skills in Vive

This is a tool to help people improving their spatial sense. (Still working on it) Spatial skills predict a young person’s achievement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. They are crucial for the architect, sculptor, and surgeon. But they get relatively little […]

PCB

The other day, I want to build my own personal data collecting system and use this data automatically control my devices. Started with testing wireless modules. At first I tried WiFi module ESP8266, for it’s cheap and low power consumption […]

Crazy Carrot in Vive

This project I try to use ray caster to interact with the scene. Started with building my farm land, I found some prefabs in unity store and make this scene: Then I added a white piont in the view for […]

Packet Analysis

I was using Wireshark to capture packet on my home network, I got an Macbook Pro capturing those 1658 packets, an PC running and playing youtube, an iPhone open browser and randomly click something, an iPad and an Macbook sleeping. It’s […]

Tunnel in cardboard

Last week I built this scene by duplicating cubes. But this week I want to add some interaction into my scene. I write some javascript to generate the cubes automatically, so I can control every cube’s movement.

IR-Remote PCB

This is the first time I try to make a PCB. First step is making a solder-stencil on the laser cutter: Spreading solder paste, and fix with pin: Place components with SMD vacuum: Step 4 is reflow with heat-gun, and […]
