This week was spent mostly on origami! Our task was to create a moving origami robot with arduino. For my group, we spent a lot of time trying to fold many different origami because our professor wanted us to come up with something 酷 and 抽象! He wanted a robot that was similar to a living thing, yet not really. It took me a while to really understand what he wanted from us.
And finally it was exhibition day on Friday!!! We heard that the TAs stayed up till 4 am just to print out individual certificates for everyone… The professor was also very encouraging that day and pointed out the good points about the robot that even the creaters themselves didn’t notice.
The awards included Best Action, Abstract, Aesthetics, etc… and also the Best of Best award (more than one were given out).
In the end, everyone went home a winner that day 😀
This concludes our Design Thinking and Expression course!
