Place Pulse quantitatively measures urban perception by turning visual preference surveys into crowdsourced games.
“Think of the site as ‘hot or not’ for cities. Users glance at a pair of photographs side by side, then click which one’s hotter or, in the official terms of the site, which one’s safer or more unique, or more upper-class. As each image is compared, a ranking of safety (or uniqueness or affluence) emerges. The Macro Connections group can then analyze and visualize those rankings to ask all sorts of fascinating questions: Are certain cities seen as wealthier than others and if so, why? What are the ramifications of segregated public housing? Does graffiti actually impact our perception of safety? Or are cities wasting their cash scrubbing buildings, when they could be investing in truly valuable public amenities, like trees?” - Fast Company

When you enter the Digital Life group at the Singtel headquarters in Singapore, you’re greeted by a kiosk and an LED waterfall that flows between opposing escalators. After you check in, and step on the escalator, a sensor detects your location and sends up fish to join you. At the top, there is a ‘fish tank’ made of an analog flip dot display coupled with 9x HD displays. Fish swim between the two tanks entertaining the guests while they wait. When a name is called, a shark will enter the tank from a random location scattering all the fish towards your awaiting host. Sensors in front of the screens allow people to interact with the tank directly as well. For instance, if you get close to the tank, the fish will scatter.
I was solely responsible for the escalator display and helped with some sensors and algorithm work for the larger installation at the top of the stairs.

In 2017, the cryptocurrency markets were exploding. Prices on many digital assets could double over night, and since cryptocurrencies trade on the global market, they are active 24 hours a day. Crypto Climate was originally created for day traders as a way to monitor and notify them of important indicator activity while away from their desk. Giving them their lives back and a sense of security.

Compromise is the world’s first fighter game designed to be played over the Ethereum blockchain. It’s retro style is a nod to the cold war-esque situation America finds itself in currently and is designed to show off the capabilities of the Magmo’s Force Move Framework.
It was designed to be a 5 way Rock, Paper, Scissors except the characters are shown below. Trump, Putin, Stormy Daniels, Mueller, and an average American. And if you bet on one of the characters, the plan was to automatically donate to their associated real life organization. Play as Trump and 2% of your bet goes to #MAGA. People aren’t going to want to do that, so they’ll only play as some characters. But that means the odds will shift. If you want to win, you need to play as the character nobody is playing at. Which is probably the most evil one.
I call it “Compromise” because in order to beat others and win, you have to compromise yourself. Evil huh?
