It is better described as my skillset in using tools to accomplish various task.

UX- UI design

"While User Experience is a conglomeration of tasks focused on optimization of a product for effective and enjoyable use; User Interface Design is its compliment, the look and feel, the presentation and interactivity of a product." Working in this field makes it enjoyable for its natural challenges to make machine interaction more NATURAL.

Fritzing, php, Bootstrap, AJAX, jQuery

Research

Naturally human always enthralled by the taste of food, sound of a music, colour of dress and feel of touch. These sensory factors effecting human pleasure feeling and keep rise to the interest to attention. So as they effect the teaching learning process in any traditional classroom.
My primary study focus is to enhance teaching-learning pleasure level, learning outcome and increase performance score by blending Augmented Technology Aided Teaching and Rapid Evaluation System (ATAT-RES).
Large population find classroom learning is not interesting and eventually formal teaching-learning process stands out to be a fear factor or tedium matter. This situation is acute in several developing densely populated countries, where one to one attention and motivation is difficult. In turn this less discussed pleasing factor in teaching learning promotes unproductive "jugar[1] solution practitioner" rather formal problem solver. This is apparently noticeable from large gap in school input and professional level out put with appropriate competency and domain specific employability.
I consider HCPI(Human Computer Pleasurable Interaction) outperforms the traditional HCI in significant manner in present time teaching learning classroom scenario. Here at NIT Agartala AI and HCI lab we are experimenting, prototyping and evaluatioing systems and design factors on the low cost augmentation in classroom interaction with formative nature for a continuous engaged learning environment.

  • Arduino : http://www.arduino.cc/ : Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
  • Fritzing : http://fritzing.org/ : Fritzing is an open-source initiative to support designers, artists, researchers and hobbyists to work creatively with interactive electronics. We are creating a software and website in the spirit of Processing and Arduino, developing a tool that allows users to document their prototypes, share them with others, teach electronics in a classroom, and to create a pcb layout for professional manufacturing.
  • Processing : http://processing.org/ : Processing is an open source programming language and environment for people who want to create images, animations, and interactions. Initially developed to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context, Processing also has evolved into a tool for generating finished professional work. Today, there are tens of thousands of students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists who use Processing for learning, prototyping, and production.
  • OpenCV : http://opencv.willowgarage.com/wiki/ : OpenCV is released under a BSD license, it is free for both academic and commercial use. It has C++, C, Python and soon Java interfaces running on Windows, Linux, Android and Mac. The library has >2500 optimized algorithms (see figure below). It is used around the world, has >2.5M downloads and >40K people in the user group. Uses range from interactive art, to mine inspection, stitching maps on the web on through advanced robotics.
  • Free eBooks by Project Gutenberg : http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page : Project Gutenberg offers over 40,000 free ebooks: choose among free epub books, free kindle books, download them or read them online. We carry high quality ebooks: All our ebooks were previously published by bona fide publishers. We digitized and diligently proofread them with the help of thousands of volunteers.
