As part of an invited workshop for BenQ at the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, we, an intercultural group of students, developed ‘一起 Hub’ (It’s a Hub). 一起 Hub is an all-in-one projector aimed for educational settings. Next, to providing projecting functionalities, it also integrates a local router – which allows private and local (or monitored) shared access tailored to the activity at hand. Upon connecting to its Wi-Fi signal, students and lecturers are able to real-time collaborate on the lecture at hand. It furthermore records the lecture and teacher and student notes for future distribution. An actuated ‘clicker’ introduces haptic feedback that can inform the lecturer on their choice of continuing to the next slide – by providing stronger resistance if a high number of student questions are raised.
The concept was presented to BenQ. Intellectual property of BenQ.
