Crystal’s final proposal

Proposal 1

The Scorpio Constellation map

Inspiration

Some of us believe in Constellation as a belief because most of Constellation can express one’s personality and behavior so it can be a rough outline of knowing other people’s personality.

For me, I am a Scorpio, every time my friend knows that they say I must be an aggressive, cold and clearly what to love and hate person. They misunderstand me with the stereotype of Constellation.

However, I think I just like Scorpio, sometimes cold sometimes crazy. I follow my heart to do everything, like the people follow the star when they walk at night.

Sketch

It is a wall decoration.
The black acrylic board be on the first layer and the last layer, the Arduino, wires put in the middle layer. But my preference will use the marble board

Each star distributes one LED light, most of the time it shows white color, when people move close to the map, the sensor turns the LED light into yellow.

Proposal 2

Neon light no night

Most public installs the Neon light in the night because it looks more attractive than the other light. So, I want to use the tube to make my own name then put the Arduino inside, then it changes the color frequently.

Proposal 3

heartbeat bookshelf

Inspiration

The heartbeat bookshelf is a wall bookshelf made in wood. The LED strip goes the direction with the heartbeat line. The red heart in the middle you can put some home stuff. Its can fit into any place!

Mr. shyvocado (Plush Night Light)

Process photos and sketches

Avocado monster, Evil pelican and lil pony were in my flush nightlight proposal list. But I chose avocado to be my nightlight!

I soldered one LED light for letting the belly (or nose) light up.

In this part, I tried to cut a little hole for making LED light goes up.

At the beginning, I planned to install the circuit board to the button. But I think this does not nice looking.

So… I changed my plan!!!

I put it on the top so that the colorful turban can cover the circuit.

And the outcome is!!!!!

ALSO, IT CAN BE AN EVIL AVOCADO!!!

The Story

Nowadays, people live under tremendous pressure, in this term, we all need some adorable emotional toy for releasing our pressure. Due to the morning, we all guard up ourselves because of the working place or the school. When we go back home at night, we become the person who we are, and it can be acceptable to have some bad things pop out of our minds. we can be imperfect at all.

I made the Mr. shyvocado which the beginning thought come from the body shape of my dad, my boyfriend, and my brother-in-law. After I made it, I thought that people can be whatever they want to be, and they should not be limited to social value. Just like shyvocado; He is a shy avocado who seems to be cute and adorable in the daylight. But at night, he becomes the person who is, as an evil avocado. But we still can accept he even he is evil avocado!
