Project 3 - I Can See
Due Monday 11/25 at
8:59pm Chicago time
The purpose of this project is to have you explore
how you can use high-resolution
large format displays in your own research.
Proposal phase - by 11/4 you should create a web page that
describes the project that you want to do, along with any
reference material that would help convince me that this is a
good project. Tell me why high-resolution large format displays
will be beneficial here and what you expect to gain. You should
then email the location of that web page to andy. I will then
make links to all those projects available on the class webpages
so everyone can see what everyone else is doing. Once andy
approves of your project you move onto the implementation phase.
turn in your project you should set up a web page or pages
describing your work, including the well-commented source code
and required files to be able to compile and run your program,
and some photographs showing what your application looks like
when its running. You should then email andy with the location
of this website before the deadline. It would probably be
a good idea to put a backup copy of the web page at a second
website just in case I can't get to the first one.
You should also create a 2-3
minute YouTube video in the CAVE showing your application
running and feature the video prominently on your project
webpage. The video should be narrated and rehearsed to show off
the important features of your project.
Remember that this site may
be useful to you later on when you are looking for a job and
want to show off the projects you have done.
you send andy the location of your webpage you should also email
a scaled down version of your favorite photo that is 320 pixels
wide by 240 pixels tall in jpeg format named
p3.<your_last_name>.jpg. This image will be used on the
class web pages along with the link to your project web page.
Each student will also give a short
demonstration about your project in-class and answer some
questions about your work. Be sure to practice your presentation
so you finish within the allotted time so everyone has equal
time to present.
