What is FTP?

FTP is a way to transfer files online. It is a protocol doing its own jobs like HTTP, IMAP or POP. There are many different types of operating systems, and FTP is a protocol that is followed by all different system users, so they can ‘talk’ to each.

FTP stands for “File Transfer Protocol.”

FTP is built by both FTP Server and FTP Client. An FTP server offers access to a directory, with sub-directories. Users connect to these servers with an FTP client, a piece of software that lets you download files from the server, as well as upload files to it. …

After the first week, I become much more familiar with Glen Raven’s environment. I can remember a lot of coworkers’ name on the floor.

The second week is a tight and busy week for me. A lot of travels, meetings, and works. I first worked out a way to play around with the touch sense fabric. I can use it as an input for electronic projects.

On Tuesday, comes an exciting trip to Anderson Plant with all the interns. We met each other in the morning then we drive to Anderson with Diana and Jamie. A lot of talks on the car made us know each other better, most of them are local people or study at Elon University, so it’s very fancy to hear people talk about things around. And they are very nice and easygoing. We ate dinner at Greensville, and we arrived at the hotel at Anderson at night. …

Hi, my name is Jasper. I am from New York University, my major is ITP.

I am currently doing an internship at Glen Raven, Burlington this summer.

So, now, I am making a vlog to document what’s going here, you know, life, work, study, food, everything that came into my mind at this moment. This is my first time to do this, a little bit nervous, and since I am not a native English speaker, my English is not 100% fluent, but I am getting better.

I arrived at the Raleigh/Durham airport from New York City on Monday, then I called a Uber and drive all the way here. I can still remember my feelings on the car, I feel so relaxed because of the sunny weather, blue sky, wide road, trees and forest alongside the highway, this isn’t what I can see in New York, I feel like all the stress and depressions are flying away. …

An interactive shirt for the dancer

Motion 2 is an interactive shirt for any types of dancers. By wearing this shirt, dancers can control the whole stage lights effects according to their own unique gestures.

Motion 2 is embedded with 3 motion sensors on 3 different positions on a human body, each sensor is detecting the movements of these parts. They will send the data to the microcontroller timely which is also attached to the garment. Then the microcontroller will process the data and send these them to the stage lights.

— Design for boring people

Few questions worth thinking about:

What do people do when they feel bored?

When will people get bored?

What do you usually do when you are waiting outside an elevator?

What do you usually do when you are waiting for the next subway?

What do you do when you are waiting for checking in the supermarket?

What will you do when you are waiting outside a bathroom?

People feel boring when they are waiting.

8 floor is for the film and photograph, so they have a very decent light for displaying photos.

Except for the main light, they have lines of the soft spotlight which casting on those pictures and frames on the wall.

Some flames are covered with a sheet of glass on the surface, but I can barely see the reflection from the glass, which is good for showing the content.

They can also turn off the main light and only using the spotlight for the show, that will be very cool cause you are surrounded by a dark environment and could only view the photos by those spotlights.

Last week, I tried to use KNN to control DMX light, and I am really interested in combining machine learning with lighting control.

I will start with poseNet and the pitch Detection in the ml5 library, and see if I could design more natural gestures or poses to control the hue light.

Light Observation

Time: 21:00
Place: Live House in Soho

After experimenting with the KNN machine learning with the DMX lighting control, this week, I want to try using wearable technology to control DMX lights.

I am a hip-hop music fan and I always go to live shows, people here are really excited, I enjoy the music, but more importantly, is the atmosphere. …
