Graduate Project – Concept Development initial thoughts

Third year has begun!

To kick start the year we are thinking about and planning our graduates projects with a term of concept and development.

I’m going to jump straight in and talk about my initial thoughts for my graduate project and the area that I want to head into.

Firstly I want to develop some kind of interactive puzzle game, using the leap motion sensor. Because this is a very new technology I feel that there is going to be lots of untapped areas within this market, so it would be a good direction to head into.

The leap motion sensor is also gaining in popularity very fast, they have recently announced that they are going to be embedding sensors into one of HP’s latest notebooks (HP ENVY17 Leap Motion SE), they are also becoming available in more and more retail stores around the world.

So far I’ve done a some research into the development process regarding for the leap motion and you can develop your applications in a variety of different coding languages.

Your application can natively link against leap motion library’s through C++ or object c or though one of the available language wrapper such as java, c#, and Python.

I think I am going to start by attempting the c++ route, it is very well documented and I believe it will give me the most freedom to do exactly what I wish within my application. This means I have a lot of work ahead of me!
