New Intern Yu Liu

June 22nd, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink

My name is Yu Liu and I will be a rising junior at the University of Florida this coming fall. I am majoring in Electrical Engineering and I will be interning at XinCheJian from June 20th to August 14th.I hope to gain experience in electronic designs and learn as much as I can these next few weeks. As an intern here at XinCheJian, I will be keeping the space clean and organized, helping out with workshops, marketing the site, and assisting staff while also working on my own project.
I will be working on an electronic skateboard project with Dooho (another intern). We were generously provided a board from Eduardo and will be trying to implement a lightweight, yet effective design. We will also be helping Eduardo out with a light sensing robot that he will be showcasing at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Shanghai. We will be learning how to build the small robot and then we will be teaching 14-18 year olds at the event.

The Short Film SENTIENT has been made with the efforts of 30 persons from 12 countries and 5 continents. It was entirely shot in Shanghai.

SENTIENT was made by a passionate crew of engineers, stylist, actors, set designer, makeup artist and sound designers.

We used Arduino based animatronic for control ADAM, the Artificial Intelligence and a RC Wifi remote to be able to make him follow the actor when they are chatting. Thanks to Lionello Lunesu from XCJ.

Drones were also used thanks to Adel and Luke from Filmtechnix, To give a blockbuster feeling to some establishing shots.

Otto是什么? 和普通通玩具不一样,Otto机器人可以像玩伴一样,和创造者一起玩游戏。
怎么来和Otto玩游戏? Otto可以散步,可以跳舞,可以发出声音以及躲避障碍物。


Camilo 在上海Bestway Inflatables & Material做过两年的工业设计师。对机器人和玩具的激情驱使他在3D打印和电子方面继续深造。在新车间做完各种不同的项目后,他创造了Otto。目的是使任何人都能接触到机器人。


Javier 在上海有两年的品牌和平面设计背景。从英孚到Bestway inflatables再到自己创业,他成立了自己的品牌工作室“The Good Agency“。他加入了Otto,致力于推广自制机器人的精神。

Leigh-Anne 在大中华地区有20年的工作经验。作为Nestworkschina.org的创始人,她看见了Otto对自闭症孩子教育的潜力,并希望将Otto在国际和国内非盈利机构里进行推广。
