Kin interview

August 30th, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink

What else will be done? Kin plans to make a second version of his motion flight simulator. His second version will vary from the first in that it will have a 7 axis motion platform instead of the current 4. The current design only has 4 axis of freedom, one controlling the up and down movement, one for tilt, one for roll, and the bottom for the rotation. With the second design, it will include 3 new axis of freedom, a horizontal axis of freedom controlling left to right motion, one for the side to side movement, full degree of angle acceleration. The current also has a maximum tilt degree of 30 degrees. The new design has a maximum platform degree of over 60 degrees but for safety reasons, it will be capped at 60. This 7 axis motion platform will make the motion flight simulator more realistic. This new design is revolutionary because no one has incorporated all these components before. Version two will take approximately 4 months and Kin hopes it will be finished in November of 2016. He plans to have a workshop when finished and if people are interested, Kin would like to show have a “How to build a helicopter simulator” workshop but only if a lot of people are interested. After the completion of his version two, he will build a version 3 of his motion flight simulator which will take about 8 months after version two to complete. Kin expects it to be available around July of 2017. After version 3 and using the same concept and structural designs, Kin plans on building a robotic arm that can move as much as the human arm, up and down, rotating in every angle, and being able to push, pull, and lift. It will be able to go up and down while it rotates and up and down while it pushes. It can also stretch out and recompress. The most important quality of the robotic arm is that it will be able to lift a lot of weight. With the design that he has in mind, Kin expects the robotic arm to weigh about 60 kg, and stand about 400 mm. It should lift at least 40 kg and have 45 degrees of freedom on either side. The meaning of this application is that you can build very high precision applications with the robotic arm. Conventional robotic arm has all its connections on a gear box. The limit of the gear box, is very obvious and requires a lot of torque which is one downside. It is very difficult to give it precision when lifting heavy weights with conventional robotic arms Kin’s design takes that into consideration and is able to bypass the limit allowing his robotic arm to move and life very precisely. Kin has taught not only himself but 8 other students how to fly a helicopter with his simulation. They all have learned how to fly with 9 hours of land instructions, 1 hour on the flight simulator and 10 minutes with real helicopter flight. Kin still has many ideas and a lot more projects that he want to do in the future. He is a very resourceful and ambitious person. He seeks out knowledge by watching videos and going on Tao Bao and getting tips from the merchants on what parts to use and how to use it. He is very excited about the possibilities and applications of his innovations and hopes to help share his dream of flying to all those around him.]]>

创客的设计思维工作坊 9月19号|Design Thinking for Makers Workshop Sep 19th

September 14th, 2015 § 1 comment § permalink

上海静安愚园东路28号3号楼一楼 新车间 2 报名参加 Sign Up Fee: RMB 200. RMB 150 for XinCheJian members. Intro to Design Thinking for Makers: Innovative companies, and inventors in general, don’t just come up with new product ideas out of thin air. They used problem-solving methods, such as “design thinking” to establish competitive advantage. These methods focus on listening to user needs, empathy, logical and creative thinking, collaboration, and experimentation. Design thinking methods can be applied in any field, and even in personal life, and can go a long way in helping makers create products that solve real needs. This intensive hands-on workshop will go through all the steps of the design process, but will spend most of the time on tools and methods to build empathy for the users, as this crucial first step often proves to be challenging in certain contexts (cultural and mindset) This workshop can help you: · become a better innovator · learn which questions can lead to uncovering hidden needs · solve complex challenges at work or in life · combine creativity and innovation with logic and analysis · become a better collaborator What to expect: This will be an intensive hands-on workshop that goes through the whole design thinking process and helps you learn-by-doing. You won’t be sitting, listening to a boring lecture, but getting your hands dirty and interacting with each other right from the beginning. Who should enroll: This workshop is ideal for not only makers interested into turning their ideas into real products or services but also professionals from any industry that are interested in learning new approaches to problem solving. ]]>

Introduction to PCB Design July 11 / PCB电路板设计入门 7月11号

July 7th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

上海静安愚园东路28号3号楼一楼 新车间 pcb 报名参加 Sign Up Learn the basics of designing your own PCB, you can use free tools such as EagleCAD (freemium) or kicad (opensource). For this we’ll use EagleCAD first learn how to layout the schemetrics and then move into the layout tool and layout your very first PCB. We will design and Layout our very own Micro controller called “Annoying ATTron” using the ATTiny85 which is compatible with Arduino Core with a few addons but just 6 pins to play with and no external crystal needed. we’ll also use autoroute for the routing quickly, and you dont like it, no problem, on your own time after the workshop you’ll be able to handroute. We’ll use 0805 SMD components as much as possible because drilling holes just suck! it’s ideal for both kids and adults without programming or electrical knowledge. Time: July 11th 2pm – 5pm (3hours) (The workshop will be conducted mostly in English, and will provide basic Chinese translation if needed.) What you must prepare: 1. Download EagleCAD and activate the freemium version: 2. Bring your computer and yourself 🙂 Fee: 300RMB; XinCheJian members enjoy reduced fee at 200RMB. ]]>
