Have you ever seen a subway station in New York with all these discarded MetroCards on the floor like this photo? Okay, maybe not this bad, but I definitely have seen a station floors with lots of discarded MetroCards. So My teammate Myn Kang and I decided to tackle this problem while we do our $1000 final project for our Entrepreneurial Design class. Before I lived in New York, whenever I...
so many interesting things, and now what?
I don’t know if it’s just me or not, but I get really excited about learning about human psychology. I took a intro psychology in undergrad once, and it was all about neurobiology, which made psychology really unattractive to me. It was interesting, but I was more interested in learning the reason behind all the human behaviors and less interested in what each brain parts do. Earlier...
This post is such a long overdue, but here it is. This is the Part 2 of Meeting Chris Poole. One really important idea that I took away from talking to Chris is that enforcing positivity is the most important job that the designer and the people who run a community site must do.

Metro Fitter: Final round of prototyping and the...
So today, we did our final round of prototyping. We finally found the right material. With this material, it’s matte, and we can print with laser printers, which was a very important thing. When we made the earlier prototypes, the material required for us to use inkjet printer, and the material was glossy. It was problematic because even after the ink was dried, it was a bit sticky and was...

Metro Fitter introduces a new way to enjoy daily commute by personalizing the Metrocard with your Instagram pictures.

Metrocard is a great souvenir for the tourists, but for New Yorkers, it is something that they can...
