Bring that delicious, healthy TV recipe to your table. As you watch the recipe on TV, each ingredient is automatically identified and added to your shopping list. And to promote healthy eating (blame Jamie!), the nutritional values of all ingredients are shown, so you can schedule your exercise just before that cheat meal that you were craving!

A cloud-based platform for managing public urinal usage. Based on the famous paper "The Urinal Problem", mictor.io relies on a set of wireless modules placed at each urinal to sense when a urinal is being used. Furthermore, it uses an intuitive color system to tell the user which urinal to use through a color LED. A web-based app provides analytics with several metrics, including the time spent at the urinal (average, max, min), the average distance from urinal, the most/least used urinal, the number of algorithm violations, and time of the day with most/least urinal usage.

Let's go back until March 2019, the month TAIKAI endured its first challenge.

2014

Knowing how to work as a team is an essential skill for life, both personal and professional. Society moves ahead if it works together, where we have our part.

Speaking

2021

I spoke at matosinhos.tech about the why and how we build the design system behind TAIKAI.

A design system can be the foundation for SaaS companies and a centralized space for single or multiple projects. But what seems to be easy to build, it’s not so easy at all. So, I shared what we learned, what we used, the mistakes we made, and what we think about the future of our design system.
