Meetup | Synergy between Art, Design, Tech and Physics!

0 comments

I have always been wowed by Kitty’s super cool projects, which have been featured by many media, such as Hackster.io, Women of Wearables Blog, CODAME Art + Tech Festival, HDDG 31 Supplyframe San Francisco, Style Engineers Worldwide, Make: magazine, Silicon Valley Insight, and Synchronized Chaos etc. 

 

And I have been wondering how Kitty manages to master the knowledge and skills in so many different areas, including scientific research, engineering, wearables, graphic novels, music, painting, and fashion design! Is she a superwoman?! 

 

Kitty describes herself as a renaissance woman in the 21st century! She has always been wondering “wouldn’t it be nice if the world had… wouldn’t people be happier?” Believing that being an engineer and artist may help, Kitty lives her life out as a prolific maker/ engineer/ artist/ designer who creates creative works that express her thoughts and inspire others!

 

Let’s have a look at Kitty’s works!

 Scientific Research 

 

 

 

 

 Wearables 

Helena - a wearable piece designed by Kitty

Helena is a dress designed by Kitty, that uses Intel Curie accelerometer on TinyTILE and its small form factor to control colors of the optical fibers with arm movements.

 

Intel Curie Pattern Matching Dress

A dress with Curie's pattern matching engine on Arduino101 to control the embedded LEDs, which makes constellations show up on the dress.

 

Solar-Powered Tech Fashion

This outfit has a solar panel on the shoulder which can charge a 5V device, like a phone, a speaker, a portable charger, etc. through USB.

Kitty & her projects have been featured on Make: Magazine

 

Paintings

    SAT考试 是申请美国大学的高中生不得不过的一关。关于SAT考试的话题也一直不断,时不时的取消成绩,延迟考试时间,甚至取消考试。虽说是有些大学不强制要求学生提交SAT成绩,但是想要提升自己的竞争力,大部分 美国大学申请 的学生都需要参加考试。 College Board 推出一个新的工具:Landscape Landscape 可以理解为一个背景环境信息盘,是 College Board 大约的两年前推出“环境背景信息中心”(Environmental Context Dashboard)的改版。 改版后的工具Landscape 考虑的因素与原来逆境分数的评估因素一致。Landscape 为学生在考试中的表现提供背景信息,囊括了学生的高中教学质量,学生成绩,学生的社区环境(例如高级课程设置和犯罪率)等等因素。

    DIY A Wireless Charger Into A Book How to make your own DIY book charger First, you should buy a small wireless charger. Look for one that is  small, slim, and doesn’t raise the temperature too much  while loading. Obviously, if the temperature goes too hot, it will burn the book. 2. Next, find an old book you are willing to cut up. Make sure the cover not too thick because the thicker the cover is, the weaker the signal will be. 3. Then, you should use a pencil to mark the shape and position of the charger on the page. 4. Next, use a sharp knife to cut a hole in the book pages where the charger will go. remove the paper 5. After that, you should also cut a hole for where the cable exits the book. 6. Then, hide the wireless charger inside the book and use tape to stick it. 7. Please note that, if you are using the same wireless charger I am using, you should get a QC 3.0 adapter or it won’t charge well. 8. This small wireless charger is too small to locate, especially when it is hidden under the book, so, you should find some thing to help to locate it. 9. If your phone do not have wireless charging feature, you should buy a receiver. After you finish, you will see the art just like here. Finally, It works. you can search on amazon :   Soopus-X wireless charger 15W   for this item i am using. video:
