SPECIAL EXPERIENCE DETAILS
TRONNOVATE DESIGN - Intern During a year of working as a design intern in a startup company, I have participated in kickstarter projects for three times. In the process, I came to learn about different aspects of design. I have grasped the "serious creative" ways of coming up with actual product from market research, ideation with profetional speed, production process, crowdfunding experience, to basic marketing skills. For me, it is a very beautiful and precious time. FANTASPHERE(ongoing project) - Founder Fantasphere is a kickstarter project that I team up with four friends of mine who are interested in startup business. I try to utilize the experience I have acquired in the company. Due to this experience, I get to appreciate many beautiful things, especially team harmony. Besides that, i have also learned about market research, product developement, brand image developement, pricing wisely, and production experience. UNESCO History Reconciliation Camp- Student The camp was held to foster reconciliation among east asian country. I met many great people who are willing to devote themselves to the world and create positive impacts, which made me have even more interest in design and social enterprise.

MEETCHANCE A NEW AND FUN INTERACTION EXPERIENCES WITH STRANGERS
Have you ever felt people on train especially indifferent? They are all very close to each other, yet distant from one another.
Have you ever witnessed the scenario that
three seats that are placed beside each other, while only one man sitting there, leaving other two seats empty.
Have you ever wondered why no one stands out when there are people making great noises in public space?

HIDEN INTERACTION DESIRE
The level of confidence of people believing in each other in society.
People long for interaction, but they don't know they do.
It is easier for people to interact if there is common opportunity.

HIGH SOCIAL CONFIDENCE
People and people are full of confidence in each
other's interaction, believe that the other will not harm us, everyone is regarded as a recognizable
partner. People would not exclude each other, but even being eager to interact. People would also
grasp every opportunity to interact with each other.
P ROBLEM CLARI FI ED
We aim to design a brand new interaction
experience in public space in order to meet people's needs of interacting with others but without their consciousness.
C H OSEN EN VIRO NMENT
PEOPLE ON TRAIN
ARE HIGHLY WILLING
TO ACCEPT INTERACTION In the train environment, some people are playing with mobile phone, someone looked around, or secretly observe other people. In such an environment, in fact, people's mind are empty. In this enviroment, we believe our design have a chance to connect strangers's heart.

2 people: impact
When there is only one person using the bar, the dot movement is simple impact.
When there are two people using the bar, the dot movement is two dots dashing with each ohter.
3 people: chasing
4 people: chasing
When there are three people using the bar, the dot movement is three dots chasing with each ohter.
When there are four people using the bar, the dot movement is three dots chasing with each ohter.

FANTASPHERE AN UPCOMING KICKSTARTER PROJECT
Stress and anxiety have filled the life of modern people, and we believe there must be a
large number of people who have been shouting deeply in their mind saying â€œPlease just let m e e s c a p e f r o m t he r eality, even fo r one moment â€? ; W h en not bei ng i n a good mood, w e
often get close to the nature to relieve our hearts and souls, read a well-written book, or c h a t wit h f r ie nd s , e t c .
FANTASPHERE We found ourselves fascinated by the unreal scene and beauty. Thus, we try to pack the nature and transformed it into the light and shade of silence and beauty in front of the table, So we made Fantasphere. Fantashpere is a glass sphere with unreal light and shadow.

FOUR DIFFERENT WORLD
STRATEGY & PRODUCTION B AC K G R O U N D R E S E A R C H
THE ENTREPRENEUR PASSION As a taiwanese product designer, the best way to pursue entreprenuership is doing project on crowdfunding
platform. we treasured our specialty on product design, it allows us to communicate and present ourselves
by product itself. Besides, we thought that the more challanging is better, so we so chose kickstarter as our
starting point, instead of other platform, sinply becuase t he r e a r e t h e mo st p eo p l e a n d c o mp e tito r s.
LEVEL OF BEING UNPRECENDENTED
W e l o o k int o s e ver al k ick s tar ter cas es . And we foun d ou t some fact ors t hat wound directly linked to success. the first factor is product that look new a nd s o m e ho w c o ns id er ed never s een b efor e, is very l i kel y t o be su ccesfu l . T he id e a s d o e s nt has to b e to tally new, or b uttom u p i nnovat i ve. Bu t i t has t o ha ve a " w o w " p oint.
TOYS FOR ADULTS
Through many cases, we found out that so many gear on kickstarter is actually toys for adult. The possibility to success is unbelieviblely high. To y s f o r a d u l t is s imp ly k eep the fun p ar t o f toys , b ut present i t i n t he w ay a d u l t w o u l d l i ke .
OUR WAY OUT
TOYS FOR ADULT:
LIGHT & SHADOW
OPENNESS: SCENARIO LIGHT
We tried our best to find
out the openness to cut
in kickstarter market.The
concluion is try to combine
the factor of "product taht is never seen" with "toys for
a d u l t" a n d th e p ro p e r p ro d u c t th a t i s su i ti b l e c o stu m e r.
PRICING& PRODUCTION In order to achieve the fundraising goal, the work must go beyond the standards and levels
as studentsâ€™ assignments. During the process of business negotiation with the factory, we
discussed the minimum production amounts,
the feasibility of different kinds of materials and production procedures, evaluations of operation
and costs, the visionary planning for global deliveries, etc. Fantasphere has enabled us to lear n tremendo usly f r om t h i s pr oj ec t .
LIFE CLOCK T H E C L O C K W I T H H E A R T B E AT
I STARTED THINKING THE MEANING OF TIME. TIME IS A FIXED FREQUENCY THAT COULD LAST FOREVER. BUT I COULD NOT FIND ANY WARMTH IN THE GIVEN FREQUENCY WE HAVE. I WANTED TO CREATE A NEW FREQUENCY THAT IS MORE CONNECTED TO HUMAN BEINGS. SO I MAKE A CLOCK WITH HEARTBEAT.
