Feng Fu Pillow

## Inspiration

I am a software engineer, and like many people who works with computers. I feel neck pain from time to time due to many hours of continuous work on computer.

An article at BeautifulMind.com suggests a way to relieve this kind of pain based on Chinese old medicine :
A point in the human body which, when stimulated by placing an ice cube, not only relieves neck pain but also promotes overall well being.

The point is called Feng Fu (Translated into English as ‘Wind Mansion’). It’s a pressure point found at the base of the skull just below the bottom of the skull cap at the top of the neck.

With few research It turns that it isn't just a Chinese myth but that some therapists (acupuncturists) are already using the Feng Fu point to heal patients.

## What it does

According to the original article, placing an ice cube on the Feng Fu point and holding it there for 20 minutes are sufficient not only to relieve neck pain but also it :

"– Improve your sleep;
– Improve the digestive system;
– Eliminate frequent colds;
– Decrease headache, toothache and joint pain;
– Improve your breathing, cardiovascular system;
– Manage neurological disorders, degenerative changes in the spine;
– Cure gastrointestinal and sexually transmitted infections;
– Manage disorders of the thyroid gland;
– Cure arthritis, hypertension and hypotension;
– Cure asthma;
– Manage disorders in the gastrointestinal tract, obesity and malnutrition;
– Remove Cellulites;
– Manage menstrual disorders, impotence, frigidity, endocrine, infertility;
– Manage psycho-emotional disorders, stress, chronic fatigue, depression, insomnia;"

Feng Fu pillow, based on IoT, simulates the cooling effect of the ice cube through thermoelectric cooling.

## How I built it

A simple Ardnuino 101 (or Genuino) based device using the integrated Bluetooth Low Energy to communicate with a mobile device to monitor the system.

The end point is a Peltier module : a low cost thermoelectric cooler transforming the electrical energy cooling from one side and heating on the other side: the cooling side is placed on the Feng Fu point as an alternative to the ice cube in Chinese acupuncture.

## Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Feng Fu is not « another » smart pillow or massage device. It is a mariage between ancient technics and new technology to solve scenarios of life.

## What's next for Feng Fu Pillow
commercialization, seeking investments to start a serious thing.

Infrared thermal camera to detect breast cancer

iRiS is a preventive solution consisted of a mobile application connected to an independent, small and easy to use module equipped with an infrared thermal camera. iRiS will allow women to scan their upper body area and detect breast cancer (if present) at its early stages .

The project is designed to use Intel Edison and a FLIR camera. and it was tested in Tunisia in addition to several other countries.More explanation in the video

Smart Hand

Smart Hand project was made to be a simple and easy solution to amputees who deserve the right of such a cheap and effective tool.

This Smart Hand doesn't need a surgical intervention: its Low cost and simplicity are due to the technical choices made to solve the given problem: using the hand muscles signals as inputs to control the titanium hand is more effective than doing a whole chirurgical intervention. Only a MYO sensor wa sufficient to translate muscle contractions to 0 and 1 : On/Off.

At the end of every finger, a pression sensor is used to calibrate the pressure in contact with the hands according to the given mode.

Through a mobile phone, it is possible to interact with the Intel Edison board then configure a pressure mode: Open door, Mouse mode, Phone tap mode or even taking an empty egg without breaking it

This project came second at Imagine Cup competition Worldwide

zayen c. created project Treating phobia through VR exposure

Medium 16b39e38 c368 49bf 8a2a 1f1cdf6feb86

Treating phobia through VR exposure

Everyone is afraid of something, even if just a little. Everyone has a thing they fear the most sometimes to the point where the mere presence of that thing or situation incapacitates their mind, body and soul. This is how millions of people around the world feel. To many of them, something as simple as going out for groceries feels like walking through a minefield within a warzone. People who suffer phobias live in a constant state of alertness, scanning (conscious and unconsciously) their surroundings for the presence of these “threats” which can prevent them from having a normal life. The actual way of treating phobia by exposure therapy can be highly impractical, For example a person with the fear of flying cannot possibly be expected to buy a plane ticket on a weekly or daily basis.And this is where we come in …The solution is virtual reality.

Project Syndrome is a Virtual Reality application on Oculus Rift. The project consists on virtual reality exposure, instead of boarding a real plane, a person can simply put on a virtual reality headset and a pair of headphone that together simulate the experience. Every step of the way, the team working on this project consulted a qualified psychologist who helped design user-scenarios that can be both effective and helpful to the patient.

The goal of this project ‘SYNDROME’ is to design and develop a tool that can be used to detect or treat phobias. It consists on creating an innovative method that could be used to treat a patient with certain phobias. As a main tool we used Unity3D game engine, with this game engine we explored different ways to treat these mental conditions using a virtual reality environment for the population with phobias. Our project facilitates the task for the psychologist in order that he will not need to describe a scene to put the patient in the detection phase, but a specific scenes for each type of phobia was designed for him , it provides the user with real-life like scenarios in a 3D world, face him with some phobia triggers like heights, darkness and animals then use sensors to measure his body conditions like heartrate, amount of sweat on his skin and his body’s temperature in order to detect the impact of the phobia trigger on him and determinate whether he has the phobia involved or not. Our project is a revolution in the psychology field, in fact, each employer or partner who needs to detect a particular phobia in a candidate, can use our project “syndrome”, especially in the police sector, military … In the case of a detected phobia , the patient may access his psychological assessment directly at home thanks to our therapy strategy.

Impact

SYNDROME offers a truly immersive3D world because of the use of Unity and Oculus rift. Huge 3D world well designed to keep the users from getting bored each time they try to detect a phobia. Narrator to guide the user all along the detection situation. Accurate feedback through the use of dedicated sensors. Ease of use and interactions because of the use of Leap Motion. The preservation of physician–patient privilege through identification system No need for doctors to detect phobias. Therapy session can be done from home.

Help psychologists gain time and effort trying to identify to patient’s phobias and help them creating an immersive experience to reput the patient in a life like environment in order to manifest his phobias.

We see “SYNDROME”’ as having the scope to reach millions who currently are not connected with their inner- fears. We have worked alongside psychologists to develop the software which brings credibility in a nearly not discovered market opportunity.

I am not an Intel employee, but I play one on television. I started playing with computers when I was 16 writing a blackjack game using Hollerith cards on an IBM 1130. I've made my career choices based on potential fun to be had, which led to a 30+ year career working for SuperComputer manufacturers, and then to "teaching career"++. I know the cake is a lie, but the Fantoccini approach to technology is not a lie. The ++ in my work as a computer science professor at Contra Costa College, is my work with SC Education (http://sc-education.org/), educating faculty about parallel and distributed computing, and the burgeoning metaverse exploring how to meld HPC and the verse (http://sciencesim.com/). All this inexorably led me to volunteer my time on this blog. BTW my name is Tom Murphy, an ever popular name previously Intel claimed by another, hence my lupine pseudonym.
