Project 3 - Wild Thing

Due Monday 4/22 at 8:59pm Chicago time


The purpose of this project is to have you explore how you can use VR in your own research.



Proposal phase - by 3/13 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 VR will be beneficial here and what you expect to gain. Tell me which platform or platforms you want to develop your application for. 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.



To turn in your project you should set up a web page with several 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 and screen captures 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.

These webpages should include:

all of which should have plenty of screenshots or photographs with meaningful captions.

Be sure to document any external libraries or tools that you make use of - give credit where credit is due.

You should also create a 2-3 minute YouTube video in the CAVE or using screen capture 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 website may be useful to you later on when you are looking for a job and want to show off the projects you have done.

When 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 jpg 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.
