I made the concept and designed all the elements in this fun infographic movie for NII (National Institute of Informatics) a while ago. Really enjoyed the whole process of making this.
The newest smart lock is finally released. I’m honored to have a chance again to design such great products of Photosynth Inc. This time I designed not only the smart lock itself and the door censor, but the brand new NFC reader, which allows your ID card compatible with the NFC to replace your physical door key.

Hi guys. How did you like 2015? This year was a preparation period for me to do a business I’m thinking of for a while. It’s almost ready and I guess it’s a good chance to let you know.
I’ll start a company to officially launch a new product, which will lead to a large framework in a later stage. The company’s mission is to create framework where creative ideas & inspirations are used for other people to increase the level of human intellect. Actually the new product to be launched soon is a brand-new version of the app I released in 2015 but this time it’s completely designed to work in the business scheme I’m planning.
The first app will be released soon. This time adults, not only kids can very much enjoy playing I’m sure. I’ll let you all know when it’s ready for download.
Hope you all have a great year in 2016! Talk to you soon!
I got the Good Design Award!
Good Design Award is the Japanese comprehensive design evaluation and commendation system, operated by the Japan Institute of Design Promotion.
“Akerun” a smart lock robot I designed for Photosynth Inc. has received the Good Design Award 2015. I really appreciate the people of the company for the opportunity to embody such a great concept into a product. The value of this product, I believe, is not composed only of the superficial design, but of the great combination of the beautiful UX/UI designs of the app that realize a high degree of usability and comfort, polite and friendly customer support, etc. all for the purpose of “the most smooth experience at a door without keys”.
For Akerun, I made the product design of the smart lock as well as the brochures, packages, pamphlets etc. and worked on its branding. Together with the company, we’ll be creating great stuff for many years to come! Also I’m personally thinking of making sooooo exciting stuff (IoT).
