《WORLD WITH OU FISH》by Mark Kurlansky is about what could influence to fish extinct. This book talk about the world with out fish in many form, there are both information and  cartoon to let us know the things will happen if fish disappear, and in this book it mentioned many things would led to this happens. Also the author of the book is trying to tell people stop doing somethings to stop hurting/killing them. As the book goes on it would give as more and more information about the world with out fish, and cartoon would would help you to understand better how bad is that situation by using picture at every end of the book.


The first central idea I had met in this book would be: Fish are dying out, because of many different reasons. And this note below would shows my thinking “Fish are dying out, because of many different reasons”

As I keep on reading the book, I could see more and more reasons why fish are dying out are popped out, and all of this support the central idea had agin and agin, on the same time, this all of evidence make me thought, what would be the solution to it and I thought, the solution would be everyone notice the problem going on, because overfishing, pollution, global warming, are all could not solve by a person, and I think this is why the author decide to write this book.

In lesson 9, we are asked to make a web for cause and effect chart, and after I had done that, the chart I made makes me know what is going on to fish, and the ocean better.

In lesson 10 “Re-read lesson” I had Re-read some part of the book that I had thought it would be important to the book, like the accurate numbers and the detail of pollution. As I am Re-reading the book I had specially read about chapter 9, which is about pollution, and I could see how is human are actually pollute ocean, and I am able to be aware of those cause.


This is all of this book’s blog, if you feel interesting about why fish are dying out and why that would be important, you could go to found the book 《WORLD WITHOUT FISH》by Mark Kurlansky

Products design: blue tooth speaker

In the last unite of products design we are trying to make a bluetooth speaker, we first use cardboard to check the size, and we cut it in wood form, and we are able to use painting and other technology to make our speaker. We also learn about different type of design and the type of design I had choose to make on my speaker is Art Deco, Art deco is a type of design using shapes and lines to make patten, and the colors are usually black and gold, but while I designing my speaker, I feel like to try new things and so I had add color green and purple base on the color black and gold, and it work out, it looks good, and I really like the colors I had add on the speaker, but the color gold seems like to turn out yellow and I think this might be a imperfect things in my design.

Here below is my final products.


My problem to solve

Many of my electronic products, like mobile phones, computers, and iPad, when I am going to sleep at night, I will habitually put them next to the bed, and this leads to the fact that when I get up the next morning, I will I found that one of my electronic products is on the ground, sometimes the screen will break.

So I want to make a wall-mounted bag that can hold my electronic products, so that I can put the electronic products in it at night, making it more convenient for me. Considering the size of the leather, I am going to make a bag the size of an iPad

My Photographic Project

My Photographic project

The picture above is my odor detection monitor, its appearance is inspired by changing the appearance of the mini arcade game console. There are three object on the front, namely the main screen, the switch button and the start button. First, let me explain the function of the main screen. The main screen will display the source and its name of the smell that detected by this machine. The second is the switch button. You can see two arrows pointing in different directions on both sides of the machine. This is the switch button. Because this machine has a save function, it can save up to 99 scent sources and names at the same time, so when you want to see other saved scents, you can use the switch button to switch left and right to find a previously recorded scent. The last thing that appears in the front is the start button. First of all, it has the function of turning on. When it is off, you can turn it on by long pressing. After turning on it, you can tap it to start detecting odors. When you tap it again, it will display the detected odors on the main screen. Of course, it also has the function of shutting down. Just like starting up, when it is turned on, long press the start button, it will switch to standby mode and will not continue to consume power.

The picture above is the back of this machine. It can be seen that it has a tiny strip-shaped opening on the back. It has the function of inhaling the smell into the machine. After inhaling, the inside of the machine will start to analyze the source of the smell and compare it with the database. Finally, the pictures and images in the database are uploaded to the home screen.

There is an opening directly above this machine, which has two main functions. The first one is charging. On the main screen of this machine, there will be the remaining power of the machine. When the color of the power changes to red, it means that the power of the machine is very low,and you need to charge in time, you can charge it below. Its second function is to insert a dedicated US, the picture below shows the appearance of a dedicated USB

The USB can be used as an export record, that is, when you run out of 99 storage spaces, you need to add some space so that you can continue to use the unit. The generated images and smell names can be used as a computer or any collection of computers. Of course, in the electronic device, if it is no longer needed, it can be deleted directly.

The picture below is what it looks like when charging / updating data

A Virtual Trip to Mt. Fuji

As a 7th grade student, my second semester choice was Product Design. Our first assignment was to build a Lightbox. Using Adobe Illustrator, pencil and paper, and a laser cutter, I was able to construct a Lightbox (as you can see below). I created this project because I have been to Japan before, a place I dearly enjoyed. Since Mt. Fuji was one of the places I have been during my trip, I thoroughly enjoyed this particular location. As a result, I chose it for my Lightbox.

Throughout this project, I came to difficulty on downloading Adobe Illustrator. Fortunately, our product design teacher, Mr. Layman, came to my assist and I was able to successfully download the application with this help.

This picture below was one of my first attempts on making the layers of my Lightbox.

A couple weeks later I have finished assembling the Lightbox with the help of my peers and teachers.

At the end of the project, I felt this was a fun and challenging project; I was a complete novice at Adobe Illustrator at the beginning. Now, I feel proud of my project and I love it!
