Art 121: Introduction to Painting

January 25th, 2010 § 0

I took an introduction to painting course to learn another skill in art. It was an interesting experience to learn how to see images as shapes of colour, instead of lines and shading.

Granny Home Activity Monitor Simulator

05-344 Applied Machine Learning

Project for course Applied Machine Learning. I used the dataset provided from Kasteren et al. 2008 about activity recognition in a smart home to train a classifer using a decision tree. To test the classifier, I developed this simulator using a Java game engine (Golden T Game Engine).

Digital Stress Bell

05-833 Applied Gadgets, Sensors and Activity Recognition in HCI
For a course, I built a soft, squeezable “stress ball” with physiological sensors, a PSoC
microcontroller, and a Bluetooth chip to measure various physiological signals and
communicated the information to a computer. The development went from breadboard prototyping to a custom PCB implementation.

Digital Stressbell

Gadget project developed for a course. Combines the concept of a stressball, dumb bell (shape), and a sound emitting "bell". It is meant to sense various physiological signals to determine if the user is stressed.
Processor
- Programmable System on Chip (PSoC)
Sensors:
- Flex sensors to detect squeezing
- Thermistor to detect palm temperature
- Electrical contacts to measure galvanic skin response (GSR) - a measure of arousal
- Heart rate (oximeter) - didn't really get this to work
Outputs
- LEDs
- LCD display
- Bluetooth output to computer (that has a custom written oscilloscope program and data logger)
- audio

COMS 501 Software Engineering (Spring 2006). I led a team of 6 students to develop a Property Management System for Small Hotels and Bed & Breakfasts. I was also heavily involved in the back-end design, implementation, testing, and documentation.

Spreadsheet program I did in my 1st semester (Fall 2003) in Cornell for the course COMS 211 Computers and Programming. Coding it was fun since I drew a lot of ideas from ShapeShifter to add extra features, but that took a lot of time.

During the December holidays of 1999, I helped out the Physics department at National Junior College by building their webpage. It was one of my early efforts at webpaging. The prototype of the site, as it once was, can be found here.
