Last week we finished the first course of our ALP journey, which was Design Thinking and Expression (the origami robots). And now we wasted no time to get to the next course. Here is where it gets very interesting.

For Design Fiction, the cohort is divided into two directions, which are Storytelling on Screen and Stage Performance. We got to choose which direction we preferred beforehand. I personally got into Storytelling on Screen, which is what I would be talking about in this blog.

For our first class, we talked about what it means to tell a story (in English – thank goodness!) It was a fairly new and refreshing concept for me, and it got me to think more about how I can use the skills I have learnt to better present the product in the future. As the class progresses, we were thrown straight into practicing our newly-acquired knowledge, by drawing storyboards on cards. Honestly, it reminded me of the good* old 3.007 Design days.

*”good” may or may not be used sarcastically, experience my vary from customer to customer, consult your doctors

In all seriousness, it is a new and exciting topic to learn, and I am eager to continue in this journey.

A new kind of human computer interface using electrical activity of muscles, known as Muscle computer Interface (muCI) has been developed by researchers. Muscle computer interface is a user interface in which user employs electrical activity of their muscle as an input while they are executing various tasks. From the past, EMG signals have been successfully used in several fields such as medicine, understanding neurophysiological disorders (e.g. neuropathy, myopathy etc.), development of prosthetic arm , fatigue detection devices etc. Muscle computer interface has a high potential for various applications to develop muscular activity based interactive devices for different purposes.
