    "To stop your mind does not mean to stop the activities of mind. It means your mind pervades your whole body. Your mind follows your breathing. With your full mind you form the mudra in your hands." - Shunryu Suzuki This project was exhibited at an exhibition at Stanford University called Personal Statements where the participants install a piece that represents who they are and introduces them to the design community. I am fascinated with the invisible potentials of the body and how they manifest in the physical world. For example, the athlete who is able to have such mastery of mental training, that in competition, at the highest intensity, he is able to keep his pulse at 80 BPM when his opponent is at 90, 90 to 100, 100 to 110, 110 to 120. Mastery of the mind and thus body at this level and beyond is all capable, but is often neglected. Through the synthesis of a microcontroller and pulse sensor you will have your resting pulse rate measured. If you are able to reach a state of calm by lowering pulse rate you will be able to lift a weight heavier and higher than you are physically capable. We can all walk this earth and be Jedis.

    • Gentle Shutter Winds

      Responding to the prompt of visualizing mobility, I created this homey nightlight for a child’s room. Gentle Shutter Winds was composed of a fan and a light bulb hidden in a box of shutters. The shutters are easily shifted with a gentle touch, changing the force of the wind and the vibrance of the light. The movement is visualized on the hanging curtains in front of the shutters: a soothing, playful breathing of light before bedtime. This prompt was part of the class ME 260: Design Principles.

          As part of ME 112: Mechanics of Materials, I worked with Mykel Braswell, Raven Jackson-Stone, and Michelle Teo to design and build Rabbit. Using four-bar linkage design, mechanical gearing, and cam shafts, we developed Rabbit to meet the objective of climbing an inclined ramp within 30 seconds.
