I combine this with my major studio final project. This is a recorder used by roommates, which can record the word you want to say to yourself. Also others can give good suggestions, blessing or funny word to you through this recorder. The big stars on the box are LED buttons. Each one have their own button. You press your button to record sound then press your button again to finish recording. The recorder will choose a random day from 3 days to 10 days to repeat the word to you. When it repeat word, all the lights are on first to remind you that there is a word to you from the past or the space. So it’s just like a time machine. You go to the recorder, press your button and listen to the word from yourself or others then your light goes off.
You can also use this to say something you are not willing to tell your roommates face by face. It gives you a media to avoid some awkward and conflict.
The buttons and little stars make up the letter “t”, which means the theme of “Talk to me”.
Hi! My name is Haotian Li. I just graduated this summer and my background is Industrial design. This is my first year in MFA Design and Technology. I feel that everything is very cool here and want to combine software and hardware in my design.
I went to Ericsson China company in my fourth year of undergraduate as a UI designer. I designed the interface of an app which used by workers to feed back information after work. Also I designed the interaction ways of this app.
I used the Arduino to make an intelligent flower pot in my fourth year which can measure the CO2, temperature and humidity of the air inside our home. Then the flower can show the air condition by its open angle. I find that we can do a lot of things by using Arduino.
