I have to do an academic project that takes place over several months - my dissertation.
I'd like to do something cool, and cutting edge, and interesting that has some basis in the real world (by this I mean something non abstract/non-fully mathematical).
My thoughts were of something that was related to image detection i.e. for an android app/game that is based on hand movements/eye tracking.
I'd like more ideas though if someone can share a cool upcoming technology/idea that is underdeveloped/has a need for or will be great fun - please share!
