Self-checkout machine in NYU Bobst Library
NYU Bobst library provides self checkout service for students to borrow books and login their ID info, so the target audience is aged from 18 to 30 and they are all well-educated.

Thermistors are variable resistors that change their resistance with temperature. So I used a thermistor and 8 LEDs to create a LOVE machine. The user can put his hand on the thermistor to test the temperature and the heat of his love, as a result, the LEDs might light up (starting from the upper left one, each LED lights up counter-clockwise) depending on the heat.

You can enlighten different LEDs by inserting the corresponding board to the mainboard. In this way, you can control which LED to light up or just connect them in parallel so that all LEDS get enlightened. Continue reading “A Combinational Switch”
Bloodchild and Other Stories is a short science fiction story written by Octavia E. Butler. It erases the concept of gender where Terran’s men usually provide host bodies for parasitic Zerg species, but interestingly she presents the colonial story in a twisted mix of bloody and warm scenes. This week, Bryan Hsu and I decided to make a 3-min sound piece focusing on the section when Gan goes out to slaughter an achti.
