Passion Projects

Be Inspired and Inspire the Others

June 2015 - on going

SONDERS is a platform to get inspired by others' life stories whilst inspiring the others with your very own life journey. Users can share their life stories in terms of 'stages' and 'events', eg. the event labelled as Low Point could be 'Ran away from school to watch random movies for several times' could be an event in the stage 'Rebellious Stage'. The series of stages/events make up a timeline that allow other users to get a more in-depth understanding of yourself even if you are a stranger.

Community

March 2017

Not so much of an extrovert, that I tended to observe rather than being actively involved in the community. But the power of reaching out is superb in the community that the more I try to step out one step at a time from my comfort zone, I have found it more enjoyable to get more involved.

Labs

AR

With the very awesome ARKit coming out Autumn 2017 on part of iOS11, I started doing demos on ARKit combining my ideas with th power of Augmented Reality. I made a ARKit demo of translating objects captured through camera and projecting the result where the objects are in reality with the new CoreML API in iOS11.

WebGL

It is my life aspiration to become a skilled digital artist. I have been learning different interactive graphical presentations and have been trying to become so skilled that I can translate whatever in my mind into a digital canvas in whatever format. Leaving tracks might help:

ugokuism

The shared idea with Jorta to share a portfolio with digital sketches that can move (動く)
