Main informations about me

Hi! I'm Hsuan Han Lai People call me Edward

Ever since I was 10 years old, I am interested in programming and robotic design. And after plunging into the inspiring education at Pennsylvania State University. It has provided me with a strong academic foundation for science and engineering, and insight into software development, computer programming and coding. I'm very passionate and dedicated to my work. I have acquired the skills and knowledge necessary to project a success. I enjoy every step of the design process, from discussion and collaboration to concept and execution.

    HTML Forge is a Web-Based application that converts a physical hand drawn User Interface mockup into HTML5 code by leveraging the power of Machine Learning. HTML Forge was designed to speed up work-flow, and allow developers and students alike to speed up their web development tasks by simplifying the prototyping process into a simple upload and convert button. HTML Forge aims to reduce the repetitive work of development, and help kick start your project.

    Common issues from the OP-1 users is that OP-1 doesn't support projects and the unit only allow certain amount of patches. I am developed a compact hardware tool that can easily swap and backup all the user patches and projects. This unit can benifet for users who don't want to connect their OP-1 to their computer. Or performers who wants to switch patches, and projects on the go. And allows the user to store all their OP-1 files in one place and store as much patches as whatever the SD card's capacity is available. The device is low cost and compact.

  • OPluge

    OPluge is a sound patch converter built for Teenage Engineering OP-1 and Synthstorm Deluge. Feature abilities to convert OP-1's AIF patch format into Deluge's XML format.

    OPluge is a sound patch converter built for Teenage Engineering OP-1 and Synthstorm Deluge. Feature abilities to convert OP-1's AIF patch format into Deluge's XML format. This converter converts AIF audio file into WAV into a 44100/16bit audio file. Meanwhile generating Deluge XML patch file that contains OP1's settings. OP1 samples are vastly available online such as website op1.fun. Make use of those preexisted patches can be a great advantage for the Deluge users.
