Spectral biofeedback has been studied in previous studies as a potential complement to traditional articulation therapy for individuals who have been resistant to traditional articulation therapy.
Results from these studies have been promising in substantiating the potential of spectral biofeedback as effective complements to traditional articulation therapy. However, existing studies have only been using spectral biofeedback […]
Design of Shape Shifting Robots
Mohan Rajesh Elara, SUTD
From residential floor cleaning to logistics delivery missions, robotics offer enormous advantages in improving productivity, efficiency and safety. However, designing these machines is challenging mainly attributed to the complex nature of the environments in which they operates. To this end, we are focusing our efforts on self-reconfigurable robots: artificial machines that possess […]
People spend 90% of their time indoors. However, the indoor air can be much more polluted than the outdoor. This will lead to sick-building syndrome, which includes asthma and other respiratory diseases. In daily administration, we need a better way of showing the overall hygiene level, thus the HygieneL system was designed, which contains both […]
Topologically Interlocking Joineries (TIJs) can be viewed as a design principle to join structural elements without metallic fasteners by creatively using topology/geometry to create interlocking structures. TIJs are found in traditional timber structures, ecologically viable buildings with a long history both in Eastern and Western culture. Such joints developed and refined over centuries exhibits enormous […]
Since the earliest days of humankind, our species has sought to shape the world around it. Our medical prowess, our feats of engineering, and our industrialization of agriculture output all speak to the success of this ongoing quest for control over ourselves and our environment.
And yet, today we are increasingly threatened by looming economic […]
PaperPixels is a toolkit for animating drawings on a regular paper in a subtle and ambient manner. This toolkit consists of two main components: (1) a modularized plug and play type modules (PaperPixels elements) that can be attached on the back of a regular paper; (2) a GUI (graphical user interface) that allows users to […]
This image created by Professor Yang Hui Ying and her team member Dr Wong Jen It, won the first place in the 2013 Materials Research Society Spring conference Science as Art competition. Its contrasting theme “Freeze!” depicts the close relation of scientific works that resemble nature. We can always look to mother nature for answers […]
The SUTD Stealth High Fidelity Speakers: an experimental design project exploring the use of unconventional materials, optimized geometry and active electronic control.
In this project, avant-garde exterior appearance meets acoustically optimized design concepts, paired with active control and high-end amplifiers. This leads to a single, integrated high-fidelity audio solution, the rugged and solid outer appearance of […]
The Dynamic Campus depicts SUTD’s East Coast Campus. Developed by students and researchers at SUTD, the sculpture is fabricated with multi-material 3D Printing. It is dynamically illuminated to signify the life that is brought to campus by its grand opening.
