Final Project Brainstorm

Posted by

I may not be too good with computers, but I do love the interweb.  I’m not sure what is really realistic for a project (considering resources needed ie. the tech) but I do find things on the internet amusing.  For example:

Autotune – I believe you can do this with Audacity.  I love “Auto-tune the News” on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dqTrUpmwPg).  However, I have no idea how to use it.  Part of the project could be my process of learning it, though.

Webcomics – self explained, but I don’t know if I have enough creativity to actually make it worthwhile. My favorite: hyperboleandahalf.com

Picture-a-day montage things – These were really popular a little while a go.  It would be a series of pictures of a subject made into a video (simpsons did a spoof on it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UItNVuBI9UI and here’s the original: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6B26asyGKDo&NR=1).  If I could grow a beard, I totally would record that but sadly, ladies cannot.

Things I like on the non-internet that I would not mind integrating somehow into a final project.

Rugby – sport I play and love

Fitness – and in general, I like fitness, working out, blah blah blah

Competitive eating – I built a database for this in another CPSC course, no lie.  It was awesome.

Goodwill shopping – Oh the things (esp. the sweaters) you find there…

I’ll keep thinking on this.
