I'm heading up a new Advanced Media Lab doing research and studio projects in support of students and faculty in Design. We're building up some fundamental projects and Flash applications for use in the studio environment (both undergrad and graduate) that can be integrated with other tools or built up and expanded into more complex applications. Some work with Makingthings for prototyping and interactive exhibits. And we're using Maya 7 to do worlds, environments and character animations as well as off the shelf product Mods to do games and training tutorials/videos. I was wondering what types of projects other people have been working or areas of interests that businesses might be looking into but did not have the time/resources to develop the idea further... Thanks!
