Google Maps is one size fits all. But wayfinding is such a universal activity that it deserves specialization. BucketMap is a platform for "bespoke" mapping, directions that are dedicated to a particular use. It will support conventions, tourists, hobbyists, and enthusiasts of all kinds, with ads and targeted directly at them. Maps will have a homespun, hand drawn feel, with features of special interest to the target audience emphasized. Your job will be to produce a prototype map demonstrating BucketMap's potential.

The children's book "Press Here" describes a charming 2D world that the reader can "interact" with by tilting and poking the book. But what if it were real? This project will explore this possibility in a mobile app. You will work with design students to create a charming interactive prototype.

As the world becomes increasingly visual, it's striking that our quiz games are still so textual. The Recognition game hopes to fill this hole. It is a visual quiz game that functions much like the old quiz show "Name that tune", in which players tried to recognize a piece of music as quickly as possible. With Recognition, players try to recognize an image as quickly as possible. You will work with faculty and students from our Art & Design department to improve a working prototype of this game. Teams producing good results may be invited to participate in further development of the game!
