CHESS DRAMA

The pieces of xiangqi are always kept in a 2-dimensional feature with a round object engraved with Chinese characters and never changed before. Because of this monotonous shape, more and more youngsters tend to regard xiangqi as a board game for the elderly. So this design is to meet rising aesthetic needs of people, arousing interests of the young in this ancient puzzle game in a result of increasing the market share of the game. That means this unique Chinese culture is no longer confined to the group of middle and old aged people, but can also become a trend in the younger generation.

3D Printed Record

3D printed records push the limits of what is currently possible given the precision of digital fabrication tools available to consumers today. These records were generated algorithmically from digital audio data and printed on a UV-cured resin 3D printer to micron precision. Though the audio quality is low, the records are meant to be a demonstration of the current state of the technology and encourage discussion about the broader implications that 3D printing has for the future of personal fabrication.

Pebble Garden Machine

The pebble garden machine is an additive manufacturing process developed for dry landscape design. It deploys coarse randomized aggregates, using epoxy resin as a binder and is assembled by an industrial robot into three-dimensional structures. It is perhaps the first application of 3D printing for dry landscape design and fabrication, creating counterintuitive geometric features such as tapering walls, cantilevering edges and low spanning arches. Overall artefacts have natural, man-made and machine aspects that are beautiful and breathtaking, capable to be produced at a fast rate.

LumiBee

The LumiBee is a compact 3D Printer that uses light curable liquid resin. It has been designed so that 95% of its parts can be printed with a filament based, low cost 3D Printer that you have at home. The LumiBee is also particular since it uses the light from the screen of a mobile phone, inserted inside, to transform the liquid resin into a three-dimensional object, using an Android App. Its structure is modular, where segments, each with a specific function, can be modified and customized.
