REVOLUTiON Revolution is a new generation of event tents. In the tropical climate like south east Asia, people need shading to protct themselves from the strong sun light and they also need flowing air to keep themselves cold. Revolution provides closure space with great air ventilation, through colorful mesh fabric.
It is light-weighted and easy to be resembled. Main materials are fabric, mesh fabric, pole, and string.
Circular metal connects the metal poles together forming structure for the tent. At the bottom edge, the poles are secured to the end of metal bars through the holes. Metal bars help prevent the tent from strong wind making it heavy and stable.

Learning Support Device
Desktop Concept In a learning environment that provides plenty of space for students, desktop concept is more conveviemt to use than wearable one since the student is able to touch the physical interface.
Wearable Concept In contrast, a small lecture desk seems not possible to place an extra object on it. Wearable device might be a solution since a micro projector is able to project the interface on top of any surfaces.
“Treasure of Knowledge” Knowledge is precious. The device is so valuable to have.
“Enjoyable Learning” Learning companion.
Learning Support Device
Learning Level Bad Intermediate Good
The camera on the device monitors a studentâ€™s facial expressions together with pulse rate sensor located on the pen in order to get studentâ€™s learning feedbacks. A detachable camera is recording the class for video playback.
An average learning feedback will be shown to the instructor. Knowing the feedbacks allows the instructor to adjust his teaching method or participate with the students more.
An infrared sensor detects handwriting pattern and transfers it into digital text for video playback and file sharing.
A student can access the system through other devices that are able to access the internet.
Learning Support Device
A micro projector project the interface on any surfaces. A camera sensor hidden behind the screen sensors the movement of userâ€™s finger allowing his/her to interact with the interface. (The image shows the device charged on the charging dock.)
In the class, student is wearing the device while it is projecting the interface on the desk.
Learning feedbacks is shown in terms of the emoticons.
Students are able to share their notes to other classmates to help each other.
Alzheimerâ€™s Caregiver Robot
Today 4.5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease makes it harder and harder for people to carry out their daily activities. Family members may have to take on many caregiving responsibilities, from helping the person bathe and eat to making money and legal decisions. The robot tends to be a 24/7 caregiver for Alzheimerâ€™ s to replace the need of human caregiver. The robot secures the home avoiding your loved one from wandering outside, help the patient find things, be his companion in personal situation, remind him what he forgot, and correct his words from language disturbances. It also reduces the physical and mental problems damaging both caregiver and patient which is the most severe problem for caregivers. Memo, an alzhiemersâ€™ caregiver robot, is designed for alzhiemers who need some assistances. Memo can look after the patient 24/7 providing medicines, entertaining, and connecting the patient with his/her family members. For emergengy, Memo can call the hospital or a neighbor to help the patient on time.
