“Your mind is like software, your body is the hardware”, started with a simple metaphor, Gino Yu the director of digital entertainment and game development in the School of Design, successfully attracted all the attendees’ attention to his topic – the science of consciousness.
Other than associate professor of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Gino Yu also founded M-Lab, a commercial digital entertainment entity that provides consulting, research, instruction and new ideas for the industry. His main area research interests involve the application of media technologies to cultivate creativity and promote enlightened consciousness.
During the time he gave speech to the public at XinCheJian, he explained the relation between entertainment and science of consciousness with simple examples and little games, which made him one of the most popular speakers of that night.
Bouhan Lou, a senior high school student also came to XinCheJian and gave a speech about Robot Operating System (ROS) robots, a set of software libraries and tools that help people build robot applications. It was hard for most of people to believe that a high school student could understand so much about ROS the software that most of people nearly heard about.
Andrew Geng, a long term member of XinCheJian who is still in university, brought his new project – ATLAS (aerial filming drone). With 9 minutes speech, he explained how ATLAS was built and the theory. From the first project of Andrew in XinCheJian – a wireless charger to his latest project – the ATLAS, we can definitely see his progress in XinCheJian.
As the first hacker space in China, XinCheJian hopes to offer everyone a platform to create and build their own projects, no matter who you are, or where you come from.
After working at XinCheJian for about 2 weeks, I’ve gained valuable experience in both work ethics as well as making working with basic hardware. Under the encouragement of my friend, William Kim, I started working at XinCheJian a while ago. Working as an intern, I had the chance to work with some electrical components I would have never came across as a high school student. I also started to learn Arduino and made a simple project out of the junk William and I had sorted out. Throughout the internship, I took great pleasure in meeting new people and talking to them about different things. This gave me an opportunity to broaden my horizons about the technological industry, which is the field I would like to work in after my undergraduate studies. I thank everyone at XinCheJian who has helped me with any problems I came across, but I want to especially thank Ricky. Ricky made sure I made good use of my time by assigning tasks and certain goals to reach by the end of the internship. He also suggested me to present on Wednesday Open Night, which is something I would never have thought to do without him. I will definitely return often to XinCheJian, but for now, I will have to be occupied by college applications…
