People live in fear that time

2. people have to stay calm, have their own thinking and not follow others when their homeland is having problem, unfair laws, large conscription and brain washes.

Product Design: Leather Design Reflection



Questions of project:

I. How does ur final product solve your initial problem?

A: YES! Past few weeks I start using my mouse but I need a mouse pad to let mouse fully used, but it’s bothering me to bring a mouse pad. After I made this product I can totally not bring my mouse pad and use this product.

II. If you could start over from the beginning, what specifically would you change about your product?

A: Use some Super glueee

III. What are the most important features of your design?

A: Mouse pad attach on computer

IV. What’s a skill you learned  or improved on over the course of this project?

A: how to cut these leather accurately, because this product need to be cut really accurate, or it might be broken, or injured. so I have to cut out the part that is broken and let my final size of mouse pad smaller


Circuits: Sewable Electronics Project II, CPX Design Reflection


Picture below is my final making for this project↓

I. Project

1. Why I choose to make it?

Because I am a gamer, and I love these Pcs, so I want to make a circuit pc(?).


2.What was it about the other designs that made you discard them?

Other Design are so difficult and I think I can’t finish them, So I just choose this one.


3.What are you most proud of for this product?

I made a lots of functions than my plan, in my play there is only 3 simple functions, but now I make 4 functions with more led effects.

II. learn

1.What was new to you?

I think that might be the The battery in battery pack. It looks like a normal disposable battery, but it can be recharged, which shocked me (ΩДΩ)


2.What things were hard for you, how did you overcome them?

Build that case. I used the fabric pad to build my pc case. but the main problem is I need to connect those pads, or it is not a “case”. I was trying to sew these pad on, but I give up.  there is so many stuffs I have to sew and I don’t have enough time to sew. if I sew it than I don’t have time to add some LEDs.


3.What tips would you give to next semester’s students?

Don’t give up things like me


4.What new things do you want to learn based on this project?

Use Code to Code and not that Scratch-like modules, it seems like those codes if for kids and not for 7-graders

Reflection of Prototype – Product Design

Prototype – Smell Detector


This is my prototype. It is a micro-computer, I design it for no side panel, because I made it really detail and I want you to see this detail. Inside the case I try to restore the real PC, include Motherboard, CPU, GPU, Power Supply, 2 RAM Sticks, Hard Drive and AIO Water Cooling Fans.

This micro-computer is an attachment of monitor. It can stick on monitor’s back panel. after stick on it, you need connect this micro-computer to the monitor. if you finish these initialization, you can just turn on the micro-computer and the monitor, it will automatically do its setup and boot.

If the boot ends, micro-computer will wait for your instructions. Please don’t forget to bring a mouse, this micro-computer is essentially A computer and it needs a mouse to control it. monitor will display the choice you can do. after choose one section, the monitor will prompt you that it is performing section. Also, you can set multiple to-do sections for the micro-computer.
