For individuals who are suffering from COPD, emBreath helps them regain breath control and embrace an active lifestyle with confidence.

 
 

OUTLINE

emBreath is a 4-month individual Master Thesis done during the spring of 2017 at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design in collaboration with Philips Healthcare in Eindhoven.

OPPORTUNITY

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) refers to a collection of lung diseases that result in breathing difficulties. In some cases, its symptoms can be reduced by engaging in breathing exercises regularly. But the know-how problem and the danger consequence of over-exertion during exercises make patients fear of taking action.

OUTCOME

Through combining the considerations of its natural shape and simple and clear interaction process, I designed emBreath, which could guide users through breathing exercises. With multi-modal real time feedback, users can understand, learn and practice breathing exercises intuitively. The safe and motivational exercises empower users to regain control and confidence to their breath.

nume - personalized nutrition


Ever questioned how the food you eat affects you?

nume unlocks what food means to you.

nume - personalized nutrition


Ever questioned how the food you eat affects you?

nume unlocks what food means to you.

 
 
 

OUTLINE

nume is a nutrition tool-kit to improve people's nutrition intake loop.

It is the result of a 12 week long project at Umeå Institute of Design at 2016. in collaboration with Microsoft. Created together with Andre Kennedy, Joanna Prichnicka and Lene Rydningen.

My contribution was to find design opportunities from field research, formulate ideas into the whole concept, and define systematic design language.

OPPORTUNITY

We all know that we are what we eat. But the meaning of those nutrition facts on the food package is often confusing, also, getting feedback from the food we eat is always delayed. How could people know if they eat rightly?

We found that people are more likely to make decision if they get instant feedback or suggestions. And a personalized suggestion which fits their preferences and needs could make it easier to take action. Which we saw it as an opportunity of design.

OUTCOME

nume creates a actionable plan for user to comprehensively improve their nutrition intake loop, through the instant feedback from the food we eat, diet suggestions based on personal preferences, and printed supplementary nutrition pills. She promotes the perception of nutrition intake and encourage people to eat healthier.

OarZpot


Self-training system on racing shells.

OarZpot


Self-training system on racing shells.

 
 

Outline

Oarzpot is a sports device dedicates to improve rowing athletes' techniques and performance.

I participated in the whole process of product development, and responsible for the industrial design and manufacturing design of the device, and interaction design of the related app.

Opportunity

The recording and analyzing of motion in rowing are long-existing problems. A coach can only guide rowers by following them on a motorboat. There are tons of invisible details about the move of oar and blade are hidden under the water.

Based on the mature motion sensor technology, we had a concept of integrating strain gauge, gyro and accelerometer on the oar to capture the whole track of each stroke. Then visualize these data and present it to rowers and coaches in real time, helping them to improve techniques and performance.

Outcome

After 2 years of development, we fulfilled the primary requirement, and keep update new features for the product.

The first generation of the product has been launched in 2017. we got a board range of orders and interests from the Norwegian national team of rowing, the Norwegian rowing association, rowing clubs and individual rowers worldwide.

Flow - measured breathing


Training more effectively to push lactate threshold

Flow - measured breathing


Training more effectively to push lactate threshold

 
 

Outline

This is a breathing sensor mainly aiming to stamina sports. It could capture users' breathing data and help them training more effectively.

I participated in the whole process of product development and marketing, and responsible for the branding design, VFX design and interaction design.

Opportunity

During stamina training, the sensor on a chest belt can capture users' breathing data, provide them with real-time feedback, and help them stay in the sweet spot of exercise intensity, which improve their Lactate Threshold.

This is a whole new concept. The main challenge is how to let people quickly understand this concept, and recognize it as a high-tech brand image.

Outcome

After 1 years of development, the first generation of the product has been launched in 2018. We keep working on new features and expand new market for this product

How sound and light bring ping-pong more fun.

 
 
 

OUTLINE

AVO is a set of ping-pong equipment bring the game more enjoyments through adding abundant interaction.

It is the result of a 2-week long sound design course at Umea Institute of Design at 2016. Built together with Eduardo Ferreira, Yi-Ting Chien and Ahsen Gülsen.

My contribution was to built interactive prototypes, made the concept video, and made the product.

OPPORTUNITY

Ping-pong is a game that has intensely rhythmic sounds. That's how it got the name. Focusing on this context, We could make the game more fun by giving the players altered feedback and enhanced new game modes.

OUTCOME

After validated the feasibility of measuring the position of ball landing, we built multiple rapid prototypes to test ideas. Based on that, we developed many interesting game modes and an new audio interface.

Bring the rock breaker on the table.

 
 

OUTLINE

This is an interaction design project for a remote-controlled rock breaker in mining environment.

It's a 10-weeks teamwork at Umeå Institute of Design, in collaboration with RISE ICT AB and Boliden AB, fall 2015. Built togerther with Benjamin Lee and Justyna Fryczak.

My contribution was to recognize the core problem from research, ideate the solution of interaction design, and build interactive prototypes.

OPPORTUNITY

Automation and offsite control in the mining industry is currently an important trend as it improves efficiency and flexibility, and reduce accidents. However, currently the disconnection between the perception and control results in the high inefficiency.

How to use interaction design to bridge to gap became the main goal in our project.

OUTCOME

Through redesigned the hardware and software user interface, we simulated a giant view mode for the operator to control a rock breaker on the table, which makes remotely controlling a mining machine as simple and intuitive as a kid play toy  in sandbox.

Fight HPV is an educational game to teach the main concepts about the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and to raise awareness about its prevention.

iOS and Android versions available. 

 

OUTLINE

This is an educational game to teach the main concept about HPV and to raise awareness of its prevention.

It's a 6-months side-project during my studying, in collaboration with The Cancer Registry of Norway.

My contribution was to define the visual language of the app, design game characters and make animations.

OPPORTUNITY

The main target groups of this app are teenager and young adult. The concept about HPV and its prevention was been integrated into a puzzle game play, therefore people could understand the concept through playing the game but not only memorize it.

OUTCOME

We decided to use cartoon characters for whole visual image , to deliver the concept without stress. More detailed info about each term also included in the app for further reading.

This app was tested in secondary schools in Norway, Iceland and Zambia, received a lot of positive feedback from both students and teachers. It could be downloaded on App Store and Google Play.
