I m pretty baffled by the size and scale of my project… And the quantity of expectations that my supervisor has of me and thus the proportional work required of me. He probably think I m some unsung under dog wiz kid outta Karachi who is just about to spread his glorious wings and stun the world. In the words of the Great Danny Crane, He wants me to pull a rabbit outta my hat (or ass, cuz I dont really have a hat).
I was lately studying Multi touch screens, I did a post somewhere here. Dont expect me to make it any easy for you and hyperlink that link here, GET IT YOURSELF!!!!. Now I m working on incorporating Gyroscopes and Accelerometers to give a more engrossing feel to the user carrying this remote unit which would be used in the project. Which is supposed to be somewhat familiar territory
Now previously, before the advent of the acclaimed iPhone, accelerometers (and Gyros) were some obscure sensors which only military used. Hell no body probably did nt even know their name and what they were used for.
So Currently I m making a design and a scheme which is used to to give a relative position (from the previous position) of a remote unit which you can currently think of as a 3-dimensional mouse. The idea I have right now is the combined effort (brain storming) of me with a german dude name Micheal Leigsnering (sorry dude if I mispelled your name). Since the idea is nt mature yet, I ll just keep it to myself and work on it, so that I dont give you guys any reason to call me nerd or geek or stupid.
So why am I writing this post??? Cuz I m on an overdose of sugar (read skittles) and my brain is on overdrive. I m at my lab sitting by my workstation with a bag of skittles. I have a habit of keeping a bag of skittles on me while I m working and write down some of my thoughts and ideas so that I can keep them in perspective and make references. So this post is kinda my reference point at the moment.
