However, in DAE, major names such as Man and Well-being (Man and Health), Man and Mobility (People and Mobility), Man and Leisure (People and Leisure), and other major names are conceptual. It is not a design with things, but firstly there are people (users and designers), we observe the relationship between that person and something (well-being, mobility etc) and design some product from there. Cyclonic · Nitta is interesting because the scarf (muffler) knitting automatically concept while warming in cold waiting time. It is fun to have knitting while training it while putting it in a fitness club etc (^ ^) The IMD2018 worldwide competitiveness of the Netherlands was ranked 15th in 2015, but ranked up to 4th in 2018 .

Indian architect received Pritzker Prize for the first time

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.

Funny automatic sawtooth (AutoSaw) incorporating AI in DIY

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.

Lovely scene and creative of baby and mama

"Liberty ♪" posted the landscape that I saw at Grand Central Station in New York subway station. I feel like a "lovely scene" and "creative landscape". Is there anything you can see in the station building in Japan? Is it only developed countries to maintain special facilities for "babies and moms" or to set up a private space? Is it a mature rich society? Is it a creative society? Can you respond to the digital economy? Looking at public spaces such as railroads, subway stations, art museums and libraries around the world, we see "social values ​​of values", "welfare policy", "social acceptability", "diversity" "education" "Creativity" etc. are visible (^ ^) There are public facilities and commercial facilities that need consideration for "baby and mama", but human beings are "people" from baby's time to elderly people. Human society has "babies and moms", "elderly people" and "disabled people" in every space. In the post-war growth period of the Japanese society, it has fostered "priority, hierarchy, discipline", "social norms", etc. in all fields, and also narrowed the tolerance and diversity of society ... "Baby and Mama", is a keyword that can be said to be the most important task that Japan has. I want to make casual "nice scene" not only in the children's park but also in everyday living space, public space and commercial space, and Japan as "creative society" including "baby and mama" (^ ^) Baby in New York "No Music, No Life":) (How to play in NY) Tags: street corner musicians & performers (113) (How to play NY) A beautiful scene and future creativity is nurtured.
