Chose Idea #3 to develop.
Problem: It can be dangerous for pedestrians when sharing footpaths with cyclists and personal mobility device users.
Solution: Augmented Reality Pavements
Augmented reality in the future may provide information on-the-go but this could at times be distracting and lead to accidents. This project seeks to conceptualize a more clutter free experience with a focus on features to keep pedestrians safe when walking along Read more →
Issue:MRT Payment system Carrying behaviour (Chipchase reading)
Theres so much we have to carry around with us everyday and our phone seems to be the most important of them all with so much stored on it. It would be so much easier if all the items we needed each day could be compressed into one thing or device. App? Wearable wristband?

IDEA 1: Virtual City Tour
Problem: When travelling, I find walking tours to be extremely insightful and interesting. However, I often wished that I could have had my own space and own pace to explore the area instead of keeping to a time limit.
An augmented screen based tour inspired by the Alter Bahnhof Video Walk, to guide the viewer’s perspective, Read more →
Idea Project 1
Problem: Unable to travel around the world due to high cost Idea: To be able to ‘see’ through cities in motion.
I had thought of the idea when I took my pet hamsters out of their cage and into the hamster ball for their daily exercise. The ball allowed the hamsters to freely roam about my larger house unlike Read more →
Design Fiction (Challenges of smart home devices)
We live in an increasingly technologically mediated world; this project looks at the challenges of smart devices that are designed to deliver to replace human care givers.
The ubiquitous future of the application of smart objects are gaining popularity; many devices are designed as objects/robots to connect, network and promote and keep track of tasks and certain Read more →
ProblemThe lack of social interaction on public transport. Passengers onboard are unwilling to move in.
Proposed Solution/ Idea
Through the use of technology, social interactions on public transport could be created by connecting people. This can be done by replacing the walls of buses/trains with interactive wall or floors. These walls not only serve as a platform to connect people, it also Read more →
In class we discussed the process of design thinking and methods to help improve and develop your ideas and did a really cool exercise.Empathise Define -Come up with the Design Problem that addresses a human need in todays world (rather than being too futuristic). Ideate Prototype Test Reiterate
