Sméll Dex:

Uses the Sméll Ball to scan smells and collects the data via Bluetooth and there is an encyclopedia page on that specific smell. It can also scan by itself, but using Bluetooth would be more high quality.

Sméll Ball

Links with the Sméll Dex, and pressing the button on the front of the ball can scan the smell in the air. It can also be opened to keep air for further purposes as well.

Cost

Both of them together costs 3999 RMB.

For my first Product Design unit, we were supposed to make a lightbox on a place we miss the most because of COVID-19. I did the Niagara Falls in Toronto, Canada. The last time I visited there, I was around 5 years old. I do remember the snow, so I would really want to go back there to remind myself what Toronto was like.

I learned a lot during this unit, such as painting and inserting LED lights and masking tape, like what it is for and how to use it. I used masking tape for my white clouds so paint wouldn’t get on there. Also, another thing I learned was using Adobe Illustrator and how to create new shapes using organic shapes.

There many things I can change about my Niagara Falls lightbox. First, I think I should find a way to make the waterfalls look active, or evidence that it is water, because from the feedback of my peers they say that the waterfall just look like mountains. Next, I think I should make the spiky rocks longer to fit my lightbox because it looks a little bit small. Finally, I think I should paint the insides of my lightbox. That way it would look more “blueish” and may look better.

Not only there are things I can fix next time, but there are also things I did well. For example, I put my biggest waterfall on a rounded square. This makes it look more stable and realistic. Also, I think I did a good job painting my clouds. They really look like they are floating in the sky like fluffy marshmallows.

In overall, I think my lightbox is a great success, because it does remind me of Toronto.

Percy and I

Introduction

 

Have you ever felt distracted towards something? Have you ever felt alone, disappointed in yourself? If you ever had these feelings, I think you can relate to Percy Jackson. Percy Jackson is a boy that is diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. He is very distracted in class, and according to page 2 of the book, “I could start any point in my short miserable life.” It sounds like he is really disappointed in himself and foreshadowed that he lost everything, or at least he thinks he did.

 

Percy and I

I can relate to Percy as he is my age and sometimes, I feel just as angry as Percy himself. I also feel that I should control my emotions better as a bad day can make me really mad. I think Percy should work on controlling his emotions more as his emotions can overtake him and make him do things without thinking about the consequence. For example, on page 17, he says, “I got into more fights with Nancy Bobofit and her friends. I was sent out into the hallway in almost every class.” Heree, as he says he gets into more fights, it sounds like he is very casual about it. I think that when he fights her, he doesn’t think about the consequences of him fighting with Nancy. On page 2, Percy says, “I hoped for once I wouldn’t get in trouble.” When I was going to school in Canada, I was usually distracted during class. A few years later I knew it was a language problem, but I was getting better at English. But I keep getting in trouble for joking around and fooling around. Once I told myself the same thing Percy said.

 

Possible Solution

The possible solution for Percy can be in a lot of ways. Of course, doctors would recommend him to go to therapy, but I don’t think that will work for him. Because in therapy you will need to tell the therapist what happened and about yourself so that way, he or she can help you. But I don’t think Percy will tell the therapist r everything as he didn’t even tell his best friend about why he agreed to go to a quest until he was convinced. I think Percy instead telling a therapist he should tell someone that he trusts, in this case, his mother. But after his mother “died” I think his condition would worsen as the only person he trusts “dies”.

 

Conclusion

So, I think the young me was really alike to Percy Jackson. Of course, the young me would also like to go on a quest too.
