DOW 2: Aladin Smart Lamp

Aladin Smart Lamp is designed for elderly people living alone. It helps to detect nighttime movement and alerts care givers in case of a fall.

What can Aladin Smart Lamp do?
1. During night time, once Aladin detect movement, it will illuminates gradually and without glare to help brighten the room which make it safer to move about.

2. Aladin has data analysis system, Predicare, where it helps to detect sleep patterns. The number of time someone wakes up might be signs of declining health.

3. If someone falls, it will send an alert to the people that is chosen to be alerted.

4. Aladin also detects temperature change and alert care taker if the change is significant.

5. It also detects abnormal presence, in case of intrusion where it will send an alert too to warn someone of intrusion.

Importance of Aladin Smart Lamp

  1. Research has shown that 646,000 people die from a fall over the world.
  2. People over the age of 65 are the most affected.
  3. There have been 37 million serious falls require medical intervention

The invention of Aladin Smart Lamp help reduce the chances of elderly dying from a fall or health issue where an immediate help will be send. It help to alert your love one in case of emergency, be it a fall or a change in sleep patterns.

Micro Project 5: The Third Space (Sheryl and Jinyee)

Posted by Sheryl Sim on Tuesday, 25 September 2018


Sheryl and I tried to have lunch over the third space. Initially it was really difficult to sync our action and having to transport food over to one another. We have to plan out what we want to do and come out with the sequence. We tried a few times doing the same thing to get it “perfect” but there’s still some flaws. To be honest, it gets quite awkward for me because we are repeating the same thing on live over and over again. However, thankfully Sheryl is able to hold the stage and make things easier for me!

Semester Project Proposal – Bedtime Snacks (By Felicia, Yijie & Jinyee)

Overview of the Project

A daily skin care routine is important but its always a hassle to store them and remembering the steps. This machine allows you to store your skin care product in sequence and dispensing automatically.

We decided to include these few items: toner, moisturiser, body lotion, essential oil, water and along with cotton pad dispenser at the side.

Model Sketch


Taking the drinks dispenser as our reference, they get to preset the drinks and they can choose the drinks they want. Upon detecting the cup, the machine will automatically dispense the correct amount of liquor with the correct mix.

Micro Project 4: Pirate Broadcasting II

For this micro project, I decided to do a live stream on Instagram. I planned to do it when I was out with my friends. I haven’t met them in like 2 months and thought that it will be interesting to do it together with them. It was kinda impromptu because I did not prepare any question for them. Also, they helped me by asking me question too when there was an awkward pause.

DOW 1: Vitastiq


Vitastiq is a device that can detect vitamin and mineral in the body through the skin. This devices connects the Electroacupuncture According to Voll (EAV) methodology to the smartphone where EAV was researched by a German medical doctor Reinhard Voll and his team. They found out that acupuncture points vary from the surrounding skin and have higher electrical conductivity where the electrical conductivity at those point has been related to the vitamin and mineral balance.

The app helps to keep track of the minerals and vitamin readings and provide personalised nutrition advice. They can easily monitor your progress as they can compare their current readings with the past readings.

Many people do not know the importance of vitamin and mineral intake in our diet is. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can create or exacerbate chronic health. Vitastiq app tell them if any particular vitamin or mineral is lacking or too much to their body requirement. They do not need to have the knowledge of where to measure as the app show them where is the point they should measure. The app also provide useful information such as which food to eat so they can replenish or which food to avoid as there’s more than what their body require.

However, there are a lot of things to remember before using vitastiq. They have to make sure their skin is clear with no lotion or any other skin care product is applied. Also, they would need to calibrate the pen every time. The readings come in low, mild and high, which makes us question if the reading is mild, are we are the lower or higher end of normal?
