Now he is transforming the runway to embrace open source technology. He believes that by cooperating with each other, constructing open resources and uniting each other's strength is the trend of the future technology wave. He created a sensational air pollution sensor "air box", a set of environmental sensing network system built by the people. He also founded “FBTUG”.
