    This project aims to provide people in intercultural marriages with an opportunity to be familiar with their partner's native language through interaction in daily life while bringing partners closer. This calendar will give a couple tasks and activities they can perform in daily life. These activities encourage them to learn each other's native language. The idea is that language can be obtained more effectively if people can engage their actions with what they learn.

    In New York City, there is an increase in the number of HIV infections among men who have sex with men (MSM), many of them due to unsafe sex. Many MSM in the city put themselves at risk by using drugs and alcohol, often while in a night club. Such behavior affects their judgment, and leads to the contraction of sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV. If condoms were easily attainable, safe sex would be practiced more often and less MSM would be at risk for HIV. The solution to the problem is simple: use a condom. “Hey New York: healthy is sexy” is an awareness campaign that encourages MSM in New York City to practice safe sex.

    Versatile is designed to equip and assist the hard of seeing in the workspace. It is an all in one unit of furniture, that includes existing asistive technology and work tools for the hard of seeing population, (for ex; Braille reader, Magnifier, Note taker, Voice recorder, etc). The utility cart also highlights elements of tactility, organization and navigation within the product and specifically designed to be helpful for those lack in seeing. Versatile is a modular furniture system that is customizable to the user's needs. So that it can functionally assists daily work needs.

    The product is a response to social issue in the realm of disability (visual impairment). Problem: The common connotation is that ‘disability steals time’. An Employer’s lack of empathy and awareness often resulted in job facilities that do not cater to employees with hard of seeing.

    My target audience is urban inhabitants and especially people who live in NYC. There are various parks and squares around NYC. However, they are not enough for the population for the city. More than 8 million people live in NYC, but there are only 1,700 parks. Different studies have proven that vegetation has therapeutic qualities to help individuals cope with stress. Some people grow small gardens in their backyard, on the balconies or even as an ornament in their living rooms. My idea is to design a ‘green bench’ built in beside, or around trees sidewalk. This ‘green bench’ solves one’s desires to grow greens in front of their house, but also people sit enjoy ‘green’ as they sit on the park.

    -Quotes from the Director of Health Information Management, Saint Vincent’s In order to transfer the medical information of a patient may take up to "6 weeks". If a patients want to get his (her) medical history documents, he (she) has to pay "75 cents per page". Patients need to complete a stack of documents.

    -Quotes from the Paramedic, Saint Vincent’s Almost "1/8" of patients I get are "unconscious". If a patient is unconscious in emergency, it takes time to search his (her) personal belongings to get some medical information. If I can’t find the information, there is "no way to know" what kind of allergy or chronic disease does he (she) have.

    It is too hard to transfer the medical history of a patient from past doctor to the new doctor. When a patient is unconscious in an emergency, it is extremely hard for paramedics to know about the medical information of the patient. "MEDEXACT" is a "portable" and "affordable device" with a "standardized system" that provides "accurate and immediate medical history of a patient" through Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology.
