Project Ideas and S&CC Meaning

The following items are from my presented project ideas:

Study Spot/Study Group App

  • Use GPS data to create heatmap of a building. The app can suggest buildings near you with available study locations.
  • When studying, you can place a tag down on the map indicating what class you’re studying for. Users can locate you and join your study group.

Wall of Smartphones

  • Idea: make a massive display out of smartphones
  • Mount smartphones in holders on a wall.
  • Detect where the smartphone is placed (photodiodes?).
  • Connect to a URL which will feed the appropriate video feed.

I didn’t like the other two ideas I pitched, but while thinking about this, I remembered an idea I had during the first day of discussion which could be a viable project.

Community Sport Equipment

  • Idea: a box at a park containing frisbees, baseballs, or other equipment will open only when you have enough people in the immediate area.
  • Protect against theft by integrating a low-power 433MHz transmitter in the equipment. If taken out of range of the base station, have the device go crazy (lights and/or sound).

Here is a link to my S&CC meaning presentation.
