This is inspired by a side effect of the Internet communication, namely anonymous, malicious comments and people’s obsession with checking their reputation in a blog and social networking culture. The Reputation- Check Instruments considers how to perceive and interact with the ‘comments’ which are private, informal but influential data. Two different types of tangible interfaces have been explored – one is acoustic and the other is visual. Both objects allow the user to recognize the traffic information first with sound or graphic. When the user’s curiosity is alerted by an abstract sound or graphic, the user can slide out the coloured bit to discover the content details. Object 01. Acoustic Instrument
The object reads aloud comments taken from the Internet.
The speech speed represents the traffic.
Object 02. Graphic Instrument
step 1.1 - Idle: Traffic information with the most common words in a certain period.
[Font design for Traffic information]
The number of pixels which compose of letters represents the number of hits on the Internet.
font type A. 10x14 : 600 -1,200 pixels on the 1,280 dot matrix
font type B. 7x10 : 300-600 pixels on the 1,280 dot matrix
font type C. 4x9 : 150-300 pixels on the 1,280 dot matrix
font type D. 3x5 : up to 150 pixels on the 1,280 dot matrix.
step 1.2 - Revealing the texts: sliding behaviour changes the font face into more legible one. step 2. Display a key phrase step 3. Display the whole sentences.

This project addresses the issue of whether the mobile phone is a surveillance tool or a digital leash and explores designing an alternative means of communication which delivers a more poetic and aesthetic experience. The Compass Phone does not support any verbal communication side, but has only a GPS function. It measures the distance between two people in real-time and then converts it to the time it takes for them to meet each other by either transport or time unit. A compass is hidden under the digit display. The centre of the compass always indicates the user's position and its needle indicates the other person's direction. Scenario.

For those who tire of the complications of TV remote controls – the endless buttons, various functions, and multiple remotes needed for basic tasks – the Origami TV Remote Control provides a playfully simple solution. It incorporates the essential functions of a remote control such as ‘channel selection’ and ‘volume control’ into an unusual interface. This is based on the design of the cootie catcher, a traditional origami device used by kids, offering access to functions through a familiar action. Channel Selection. Volume Control.
