Projects

Giga Pixel Camera

During my internship in Microsoft Asia, I worked with Moshe Ben-Ezra on the giga pixel camera project aiming to design and build digital tile-scan large format camera capable of acquiring high quality and high resolution images of static scenes. I completely rewrote the operating software in C# and tools for post processing captured images.

In March 2010, we went with the camera to Dunhuang caves and captured over a tera-bytes data worth of data that never captured before at the same details and clarity.

Nintendo Wii Remote (Wiimote) as Alternative Input Device for Reviewing Radiology Exams.

This project is a collaboration between my advisor and Asst. Prof. George Shih, MD from the Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York. We co-developed the software used by the Cornell researchers' study.
