Shun Cheng’s final project ray gun

I’m such a big fan of toys and products that’s my passion and reason for studying Products of design at SVA. In my final project, I want to make a ray gun that combines sound and light effects. Having fun while building this ray gun is my goal and learn how to use an Arduino soundboard.

Main Scene

  1. enter the RPG game scene
  2. gear store
  3. select your gear
  4. show gear detail
  5. ready to go

I may also ask for help our classmate’s help if they want to show their Halloween project in the video

You(=I) Electronic Beating Heart

For my final project, I am making an electronic beating heart with a heart rate simulator. This is a unique way to show your feelings towards someone that you are into, by beaming the lights according to your heart rate. When you hold the figure in your hands, the lights shine and show how nervous you are when standing in front of someone that you have always been longing for.

EatWhat – final project


I always spend a lot of time deciding what to eat since I have so many options, it’s hard to just pick one from them. Therefore, I want to design a product to decide it for me. Speaking of luck, gambling can not be overlooked, and then dice, roulette and slot machines come to mind. My first several ideas are around dice and roulette, but finally choose slot machine as the form.

Main scene in the videos:

The first scene will be a persona asking about what to eat, show she phone screen.

The second scene will be the time pass and her anxiety

The third scene will be the ad of EatWhat showed when she watches YouTube and she places an order of it

The next scene will be the delivery and the usage of EatWhat:
Pull down the handle, the machine rolls, light blink with sound, the result shows, light stop blinking
Show how much time it takes

The last scene will show her smile and happy moment eating with friends, and the rolling machine

Electronic Wooden Fish

This project is a fish-shaped electronic wooden fish made of acrylic panels. The top of the wooden fish will show the number of times I tap it. Also, the number of taps and the sound of tapping are controlled by my phone. Whenever I realize that I have done something wrong, I can remotely tap the electronic wooden fish with my phone to accumulate merits.

Description for my project video: The video will consist of several scenes. The first scene is when I watch a video about subway fare evaders. During the second scene, I begin to think about how to avoid fares. The third scene is me sneaking to the subway station to try to avoid fares. And background music, the sound of wooden fish, fades in. The fourth scene is when I realize that this act is a mistake, so I pick up my phone to “tap the wooden fish”. The final scene is when the wooden fish in my room starts to sound and counts the number of times I have tapped it.

SeQuence- Final Project

For my final project, I will be creating an object for the facilitation specific meetings using simple turn based functionality, utilizing leds to show who turn it will be next. This produce, which I am calling SeQuence, will be a table top device in the form of the capital letter Q, 3d printed from acrylic. My idea came when Becky told me about her experience as a child with the monopoly “Playmaster”.

For my video, I am thinking that we will start out with a tracking shot of a group of people talking amongst themselves walking down a hallway, from camera left to camera right. Then we will cut to the last person going into the destination, so labeled conference room, and i will place a sign on the glass that says “important creative meeting”. We will then cut to a still close up of a pile of multi colored, round tokens that everyone will be taking one from. We will then cut to us all sitting around the table and me bringing out the SeQuence and placing it in the middle of the table. The room will then get quiet and I will press the button to turn it on and it will prompt the first person to start. We will then go through a sewuence where it will be nearing the end of the persons time and the light on the object will start blinking. At that point the person speaking will start to wrap up, right as the object picks another color for the next person to start.

Jacey IoT & Concepts

My IoT:

Troubleshooting: I ran into this issue while trying to program my wifi board.


  1. LED Moodlight that changes color according to the mood set (ex. happy – red, anxious – purple). I am thinking of using the LED light as the main light source and inside a sphere-like shape. (Reference:
  2. Water lamp: a small night lamp that displays the light with a water-ish kind of effect. When I wave my hand, the light will turn on. The light will move in an outward motion if I wave twice. In order to turn it off, I press the button in the middle (?) (Reference:
  3. Heartbeat stimulator: Soldering wires into a heart-shaped model, with the boards within. I might need an MX30102 sensor as the heart-rate monitor.

Final project ideas (Cyntia)

  1. Rainbow clock box: That looks like a charger (12 LED neon) and change colors according to the time of the day.


2. Neon sign – music:

A neon sign that can follow the rhythm of the music?


3. Mood wheel mirror

A mirror that has LEDS that change according to your mood (2-3 options)

Final Project Ideas

  1. Hungry cat alarm: Since I worry about my cat if he didn’t have food on time, I will make a cat feeding alarm clock. I’ll laser cut a furious cat on a board, and install led lightbulbs on the board. The eyes of the furious cat turn red when it’s time to feed my cat. After feeding the stomach of the furious cat will be glowing orange warm light.
  2. Thirty-day tracker : This project’s purpose is to keep track of whether I’ve managed to do each of the following three things every day for 30 days: enjoy one thing, eat at home, and get to bed on time. microcontroller board
  3. Electronic Wooden Fish: Wooden fish often used in rituals usually involving the recitation of sutras, mantras, or other Buddhist texts. Sometimes, I occasionally make poor decisions or chuckle at hell jokes. What I will do is earn merit in the hopes that Buddha will forgive me. By using a touch to strike the Electronic Wooden Fish on the board. How many times I hit it will be recorded in the upper right corner. I want to make this board compact so I can carry it around in my pocket. If the touch counting function is not feasible, I will substitute a button for it. Another way is that I will 3D print a Wooden Fish and put a sound chip inside. When I tap the digital Wooden Fish on my phone, the 3D printed Wooden Fish will make a sound.
