Two Web Technologies Teams won awards at the Kinect Creativity Development Competition (Kinect創意程式開發大賽)

July 2014

S&T Full-time Computing-Web Technologies Year 4 students Andy Tsui, Ng Wing Hoi, and So Chung Hei won first-runner up prize with their “Intelligent Work Desk System” and Year 3 students Rita Leung, Li Kin Lun, and Dave Fung won second runner-up prize with their “KinectSmart: Smart Home and Security” system in the Kinect Creative System Development Competition, which is co-organized by Microsoft HK and HKFYG Media 21. Special thanks to Dr. Jeff Tang of CIHE for his guidance and encouragement.

There were 4 OUHK Computing teams participated in the competition. Three of them were shortlisted in the final 10 teams.

電腦學系的同學在「Kinect創意程式開發大賽」中創出佳績。萬維網科技畢業年隊伍徐俊怡、吳泳海、蘇仲熙憑「智能辦公桌系統」奪取銀獎,而三年級生 梁楚怡、李健麟、馮國豪完成的「KinectSmart智能家居保安系統」則獲得銅獎。此比賽是由Microsoft HK及香港青年協會賽馬會Media 21媒體空間合辦。特別感謝明愛專上學院的Dr. Jeff Tang的指導及鼓勵。

共有四隊OUHK Computing同學參賽,有三隊進入決賽最後十強。

Krutz Cheuk
Biomedical Engineer
Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital

After graduating from OUHK, Krutz obtained an M.Sc. in Engineering Management from CityU. He is now completing his second master degree, M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering, at CUHK. Krutz has a wide range of working experience. He has been with Siemens, VTech, and PCCW.

Hugo Leung
Software and Hardware Engineer
Innovation Team Company Limited

Hugo Leung Wai-yin, who graduated from his four-year programme in 2015, won the Best Paper Award for his ‘intelligent pill-dispenser’ design at the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering’s International Conference on Consumer Electronics – China 2015.

The pill-dispenser alerts patients via sound and LED flashes to pre-set dosage and time intervals. Unlike units currently on the market, Hugo’s design connects to any mobile phone globally. In explaining how it works, he said: ‘There are three layers in the portable pillbox. The lowest level is a controller with various devices which can be connected to mobile phones in remote locations. Patients are alerted by a sound alarm and flashes. Should they fail to follow their prescribed regime, data can be sent via SMS to relatives and friends for follow up.’ The pill-dispenser has four medicine slots, plus a back-up with a LED alert, topped by a 500ml water bottle. It took Hugo three months of research and coding to complete his design, but he feels it was worth all his time and effort.

Hugo’s public examination results were disappointing and he was at a loss about his future before enrolling at the OUHK, which he now realizes was a major turning point in his life. He is grateful for the OUHK’s learning environment, its industry links and the positive guidance and encouragement from his teachers. The University is now exploring the commercial potential of his design with a pharmaceutical company. He hopes that this will benefit the elderly and chronically ill, as well as the society at large.

Soon after completing his studies, Hugo joined an automation technology company as an assistant engineer. He is responsible for the design and development of automation devices. The target is to minimize human labor and increase the quality of products. He is developing products which are used in various sections, including healthcare, manufacturing and consumer electronics.
