i-Space: Student Maker Projects

Consisting of the Digital Makerspace, Digital Visualisation Room and Studios
VR laser cut
VR Training for Laser Cutter Operation 

The student developed a Virtual Reality (VR) training application for the Library's technical support staff to practice the operation of our actual laser cutter in service.                                                                                        


Medication Reminder Smart Watch for the Elderly 

The student incorporated a medication reminder in a smart watch, for the elderly to receive timely reminders on their medication with M5Stack device and the Blynk mobile application.

Weather Monitoring
Real Time Weather Monitoring Station

The student used an Arduino IDE program to set up a small scale weather monitoring station which indicate the real-time and historical environmental data over the IoT platform ThingsBoard.                                                                   

Hand Senitiser Dispenser
Internet of Things: Automatic Hand Sanitiser Dispenser

The student built a touchless auto dispenser for hand sanitiser with simple IoT components and 3D printing.                                                                                                                                                                                                         

Virtual Tour of PolyU Old Campus

The students used 3D modelling software to recreate the HKTC campus through Virtual Reality (VR) technology. This project has three components, including the Overview Video, Virtual Tour, and Free Exploration.                                         


3D Modelling and VR Tour of a Green Park 

The student used 3D modeling software to create a virtual landscape of the Green Park and its 3D objects including plants, fountain, bench, direction board and buildings.                                                                                        

i-Space Tour
3D Modelling and VR Tour of the Library’s i-Space 

The student used 3DS MAX 3D modeling software to create a virtual space of i-Space and its 3D objects bit by bit including furniture, plants, laser printers, 3D printers and PCs video wall.                                                                              

Internet of Things: Smart Home Prototype

The student designed the tailor-made application on Internet of Things (IoT): Smart Home Prototype. The prototype of the smart home consists of a series of IoT controllers and smart sensors.
