On March 7, Mr. Balkrishna Doshi, the first Indian architect, was chosen for the Pritzker Prize, which is said to be the Nobel Prize for the architectural world. It is said that the achievement which contributed to Indian society for almost 70 years was evaluated. There seems to be criticism that the award winner so far occupies more than two-thirds of architects in Europe and North America, and lacks diversity. Three Japanese, one Chinese and one Chile have won this decade. Mr. Doshi seems that there are no buildings that can be said to be masterpieces overseas. It seems that it is an expression of the belief that using "architecture" for public interests is handling the majority of projects in India. Mr. Doshi who experienced "extreme poverty" in childhood is hoping that by receiving the most prestigious awards in the architecture, he can pay attention to the influence of the public housing in India . Mr. Doshi said, "Residents of public housing have no land, no jobs" "But if the government gives a little land, I can work hard and build my own house" . Mr. Doshi (90 years old), born in Pune, Western India, worked in Le Parcheze in Paris in the early 1950's, returned to India, established an office in Ahmedabad in 1956. Since then, we have more than 100 projects in all over India.

The team of MIT's computer science and artificial intelligence laboratory (CSAIL) teams such as Jeffrey Lipton and Adriana Schulz also announced a robotic system incorporating AI (artificial intelligence) into the world of carpentry called AutoSaw (automatic sawtooth) did. Every year, in woodworking work, both professional and amateur hurt hands and fingers, doing dangerous work such as sawing. It is an interesting research theme to automate dangerous work by human hand at low cost. "Robots have already enabled mass production, but using AI (artificial intelligence) there is the possibility of realizing customization and personalization with everything we produce," said the director of CSAIL "Said Daniela Rus. Compared with conventional CAD systems of furniture and woodworking machines controlled by computer, the features of the AutoSaw system are as follows. 1. We have selected interfaces that can be easily customized by amateur users, software that selects from many templates designed by experts, and software that automatically simulates and verifies load capacity and deformation etc. 2. Depending on the scale, it is very expensive depending on the scale, and for industrial CNC machine tools and industrial robot arms requiring skill in operation, a general tool such as a circular sawing machine + a combination of a small and inexpensive self-propelled robot To automate it at low cost. 3. By combining common tools and self-propelled robots, we can handle work at the construction site without being bound by places. The research theme is to bring "Mass customization" made possible by 3D printers into the field of furniture and woodworking, making it easy to create custom furniture with high thresholds. It is still a primitive system, but it is an interesting research that you can imagine safe and personalized "DIY world" in the near future (^ ^) Custom carpentry with help from robots (MIT News) Robot Assisted Carpentry for Mass Customization ( pdf / MIT) Sawtooth mounted on a modified rumba.

The idea of gravity chopsticks® which floats at the tip when placing chopsticks is said to have been born in troubled places of "chopsticks" when they were eating at a restaurant, Dang Tran (San Tran) says. Even if the cross section of the grip part of chopsticks is placed as a rectangle, it does not roll and it is designed to be thinner to the tip. The biggest feature of this chopstick is that when it is placed, the tip part is in a floating state, there is no need for "chopstick rest", you can use chopsticks hygienically anywhere. In Japan, since the culture of "chopstick rests" is common sense, I feel the idea and design of this "gravity chopsticks" is interesting (^ ^) Moreover, it has a simple chopsticks with chopsticks culture and no chopstick culture I think like a design. Did America's rationality create it? (Laugh) Although the first "gravity chopsticks" was expensive at 59.95 dollars (about 6,500 yen) because it sticks to aluminum material, "Gravity Chopstick 2.0" is cheap and cost as $ 5.95 (about 650 yen). This GC 2.0 has adopted a seamless design, material, manufacturing technology, it corresponds to washing with a dishwasher without impairing quality, and it states that it is optimum for everyday life.
