TAIPEI HOME – Search Mandarin Real Estate Listings in English

Weekend project built with Zach Caceres.

Finding good apartments in Taipei is tough! The best listings are all in Mandarin and, even if you can read it, the websites are difficult to use. This is a tool that lets you search Mandarin real estate listings using English.

1) Search by proximity to any station in the Taipei MRT/Subway system
2) Search by proximity to universities and schools
3) Search the most common room configurations, including private suites or rooms subleased in people's houses

Tool available here.

Human-Computer Interaction and Hardware


This was a group project for a course in Interactive Installation and Performing Technologies.

We built an automatic proximity volume control that changes according to the distance between a person and the screen. This was created to prevent damage in kids that watch TV too close from it.

Hardware: Arduino UNO; Ultrasonic distance sensor; jumper wires | Software: Max 7 and Arduino IDE

Code available here

Sensor system for pedestrians safety

I worked this project with a team for the City Science Mobility++ Hackathon organized by MIT Media Lab and Taipei Tech University during November of 2017.

Some traffic lights (for drivers and pedestrians) turn green at the same time being a constant threat to pedestrians safety. To reduce accidents and avoid injuries caused by cars and motorcycles, we created a sensor system (Safe a second!) that detects the number of pedestrians waiting to cross the street and adjusts the time of the traffic lights to guarantee their safety. We developed the hardware and we also worked on simulations with the modeling tool Gama to understand the collected information. 

Hardware: Rasbperry pi, Arduino breadboard, Arduino timer, jumper wires, camera.

Product Design

Antigua Trading Co.

In 2015, I worked with an American to developed a profitable weekend passion project.  We prototyped, designed, and brought to market a unique line of artisan leather products using traditional Guatemalan fabrics (We closed it down after both of us founders moved out of Guatemala – all of our products were sold).
