Create an innovative user interface idea and present it to the world.

This is an individual assignment. You must work on your own.


Develop a new computing application (web-based, laptop-based, and/or smartphone-based), which includes a user interface. The system should be interactive and innovative, i.e., it should not exist out there. Our goal is to work to develop a new interface, not to duplicate (or mimic) an existing one.

You may also be asked to evaluate the video presentations of your classmates (e.g., 20% of your grade).
