THE NEW VISION OF RUNNING SHOES A brand new wearing experience A brand new way to protect ankles

The Waterfly Running Shoes’ concept came from Chinese Kung Fu’s Water Flight, which inspired the brisk image of the modern snakers. The overall curvilinear appearance of the shoe surface and sole are based on the rhythmic effect of water ripples. A new wearing experience is created by applying nanotechnology to the design. Nanotube tech materials are used as knitting wires to construct the shoe and to match the form of the feet when worn, thus eliminating the need for shoe laces. The design is light-weight and provides breathability. The material also increases economic efficiency by allowing the shoe to be flattened for compact packing to reduce the cost of packaging and transportation.

Co-Designer: Zu, Li-Xuan / Ku,chieh

The design concept comes from kung-fu “floating above the water,” giving a light image and bringing into the image on modern running shoes. Separate the style into three parts, first, the curves and color of the shoe surface come from the ripples occurred when the water touched by foot creating rhythmic feeling ; secondly, streamline shape represent ups and downs of the waves; third, jelly silicone rubber bottom best describes the sense of lightness floating on the water.

Stepping allows the air flow in from the bottom stoma, transporting the air to the special textile on the surface to increase the surface thus provide enough protection to the ankles.

The concept of the shoe bottom comes from the real foot muscle lines, trying to convey the idea of running with bear feet. Cut the bottom into grid-like inflatable to provide bigger area for stepping inflating operation. As for the bottom heel part imitates the muscle tissue.

The textile yarn on the shoe surface allows the air to flow, making by tons of nano inflatable line mix with yarns.

Before wearing, the shoes are in a deflated state.After wearing, the jumping motion as warm-up will inflate the shoes upper surface to cover the user’s feet Comprehensivly.



After the upper’s surface match the form of user’s feet.The shoes will mantain it’s inflation state during running without air leakage. To remove the sheos, simply press the release valve located at the rear.

The shoes will shrink after releasing, needing less space when putting into the box in order to reduce the packing and transportation cost; boost the overall economic and environmental efficiency.

Utilize abstract concepts to creat a light fixture with rotatable design.The goal is to expand beyond the traditional image of lamps and embrace abstract designs with tasteful straight lines.With this, the light fixture will ultimately stray from the overused curvatures of the past and appear modernized and innovative

This project we try to deisgn a lamp by integrating aesthetic and funtion. We merge the semantics of Deconstruction and Minimalism to design an delicate table lamp.

Design Thinking & Brainstorming What will kitchen be like in the future? By observing phenomena in society nowadays, I found issuues such as overpopulation,high prices and occupancy rate in downtown and more and more people choose not being married which force young men and women who live and work in big cities can only afford small apartments. I consider kitchen as a place to enjoy and get satasfied by cooking. Future Kitchen is a way I came up with to make people who live in small places are able to have the joy of cooking.

Future Kitchen No borad

System Furniture




Design concept: The kitchen should be an enjoyable living space. However, the life of a confined suite makes owning a comfortable kitchen difficult. Having the kitchen installed to the wall allows occupants of small suites to have a spacious and convenient cooking environment.

Air circulation Air circulation occurs indoors or in a confined space without exhaust pipes.

Storage The venthood,electricstove,and storage space are installed to the wall to accommodate limited kitchen space.

設計理念 Design Brief

人體工學 滾輪置中偏右


Wheel is setted at center-right



人機介面 Rage針對玩家字抓握滑鼠的掌型進行人機介面上的調整: 由於手掌抓握滑鼠手掌自然向外側傾斜,因此以中指滑動滾輪的配置以朝向右側為主。 方便玩家以自然抓握的方式來調控滾輪 並且並將有線滑鼠傳輸線連接線也配置於置中偏右,避開使用上的干擾。

Rage is designed in ergonamic way to devleop the user interface. When grabing the mouse, the hand is lateral tilt and the middle finger is putted at the center-right place. So I place the wheel at center-right place to help people easily to use it and th cable is also placed as same way to avoid distrub user when using mouse.

RAGE-怒火,是一支為FPS玩家設計的電競滑鼠 結合人體工學的自然曲線,以及方便操作的人機介面 讓電競玩家可以透過使用RAGE來提昇遊戲進行的效率

RAGE is a gaming mouse which is designed for professional FPS player.

The design concept is figuring out the best ergonamic and user interface design for player,in order to develope the player proformence

Adjustment botton placed inside

市面上大多數產品的dpi數值調整二鍵配置於滾輪後方 對於電競玩家來說並不是非常友善的人機介面。

大拇指是手指最靈活的部位,因此將即時調整的按鍵配置於拇指側 以方便在遊戲進行中以最快且最準確的方式調控。

dpi +




In market, most gaming mouse placed the dpi adjustment botton behinde the wheel, but it’s not easy for user to press it.

The thumbs is the most flexible finger, therefore i placed all adjustment botton at the left side ( for Right-handed inside is at left ) To help player can press these bottons easily


Material/Texture/Pattern handle

前端扁平後方飽滿的型態符合接近八成使用者習慣的抓握方式 並透過材質與紋理的搭配讓使用上更為舒適。

I placed the rough texture with customize pattern at the shape where could be grabed to let player can easily controal the mouse to develop playing performance.


經過調查顯示,多數使用者偏好的滑鼠抓握感,型態偏向飽滿且 著重在掌心的支撐處,因此RAGE的設計以前軀型態的外觀為主 體來塑造符合大眾偏好的滑鼠型態







The Design Research: Most player adore to use full outline gaming mouse which can support the central of palm. Therefore, I design this gaming mouse has a Forequarters outline to satisfy those needs.

High efficiency cleaning robot RayBOT uses a high-power density electric power storage pack that can be a lithium battery, super capacitor or lithium-ion capacitor. This set-up allows for fast charging and transforms the robot cleaner’s performance from one where the charging time is greater than the working hours to one where the charging time is less than time on active duty. Practically, this leads to minutes of charging for 30 minutes of work, as opposed to traditional robot cleaners that take hours to charge but work for less than an hour. This fast charging feature also leads to a viable RayBOT fleet concept and ioT(internet of Things) device applied to enable RayBot fleet work collaboratively and approach a practical application of future technology. Combine charging station and dust collector in a folding platform not only an innovative design to meet this fast charging RayBOT’s work model but also provide the cover for the charging contact and dust dumping hole.

The station not only charges but also allows the Raybot to dispose of the contents of the dust container.


Folding platform saving space, avoiding exposure of charging contacts

Without a fast-charging feature, most traditional robot cleaners end up being idle while waiting in a long queue to be charged. In contrast, as a truly IoT (Internet of Things) device, the RayBOT works in collaboration in a fleet and with other household appliances.


Fleet management of the RayBOT includes dynamically scheduling charging times to ensure the most optimal number of cleaning devices is on active duty. Moreover, the system also coordinates the movements of various cleaners, with anti-collision features and log data exchange to allow for the most efficient fleet management. This technology has exciting applications for future smart vehicle traffic control and IoT technologies.

Corner Buster The component layout is designed to maximize the coverage of the cleaning functions, so that each component is deployed in appropriate positions to easily clean the edge and corners of a space.

Creation of design concept: The bone of Oriental, The spirt of Poltrona Frau Yi ,is a delicate armchairs, which is conversion rebuilt the traditional oriental Ming furniture. It is classic of traditional furniture, which is elegant and reliable structure represents a certain social status and position , but also is a real goods and artwork combine complex. Oriental furniture and more made of bamboo or wood structural formula of assembly ,based on the structural outline.It’s the Yi’s bone. When the Oriental furniture soul merge the modern design semantic and encounter with the soul of Poltrona Frau history leather texture from the skeleton to grow , new soul from this bred out . Yi , is a simple, concise with life as the center of one of an armchair , with careful tailoring and oriental antique furniture appearance , while the proportion of the back pulled up , and keep the traditional chairs feature elegant shape to create dignified atmosphere. The base retain the Ming-style furniture structure to the concept of the hemispherical dome as a base . Chair armrest is divided into inner and outer , the inside components choose Nest Frau® leather, the outside is the Heritage Frau® leather , the choice of 30 Afica color swatches , 215 Turchese purification of shaping dignified appearance. When East and West "classic" collide with each other ,I hope that through this chair create a new East-West nurture the soul .

Bamboo 內圍編織:Nest系列,有較多的色彩,色彩上選用Azul款式 外圍支架:Heritage系列我受到沉穩如大理石般的紋理,色彩上選用110226 Nero款式,塑造沉穩洗煉的外觀。 色彩運用則從Color system中選出:30 Afica色票,215 Turchese作為外圍 與內圍的主要色系 底座的支架可使用不鏽鋼作為金屬底座,以穩固上方的屏風。

The inside complements of Knit is used Nest Frau® leather with the Azul Type color. The outside complements of the stents are used Heritage Frau® leather with the 110226 NeroType color. Base bracket is made of stainless steel, in order to secure the top of the screen .

屏風是個很特殊的家飾品,本身不具有特別鮮明的功能,但那界定區域與提 供遮蔽性的機能卻能讓居家生活有安全感,為室內住宅提供劃分空間但有保 持開放性,這一點讓屏風成為家飾品最鮮明卻也是最隱密的角色。 外觀以圓與幾何作為主要特點,圓潤的造型希望能帶來家居空間多一份親切 感,因此減少生硬理性的直線元素。 而屏風的遮蔽元素則選用竹的傳統技法”編織”,透過將傳統竹編的技術應 用到皮革的編織法上,塑造出六角形的特殊紋理,讓視覺上多了些趣味,並 結合外觀元素來塑造出現代東方意象的氛圍的家飾品。

Creation of design concept: Screen is a very unique home accessories, itself does not have special distinctive features, but the definition of the area and provide shielding function but let home life a sense of security, to provide space for indoor residential divided but remain open, and this gives screens become the most distinctive home accessories but also the most intimate role. Appearance with geometric circle as the main features, rounded shape and hope to bring home more of a homely space, thus reducing blunt rational linear elements. Bamboo traditional techniques is the screen masking element, "weaving", through the application of craftship of the traditional bamboo weave leather, hexagonal shape special texture, to create interest sence.


At last, by combining the appearance of elements, it creates a modern oriental imagery atmosphere home accessories.
