SUCCESS! I got selenium running with a little bit of code. It basically takes over a browser window and allows you to give the browser input through python code. We will soon be able to scroll to the bottom of a friends page and load the html of said page to get the id's of someone's friends. I will implement it in our project tomorrow, but we are back on track to collect data and I am happy.

After some setbacks and a long search we found the best SDK for our app. Vuforia is a cross platform SDK that has the necessary computer vision-based image recognition needed for our app. Vuforia offers two options for developing, you can either write a single native app or use a Unity base package. Both methods would allow you to reach the most users across the widest range of smartphones and tablets but unity has the built in rendering engine.

Hello everyone, I've updated the concept document considerably. We've been pretty busy working, so we're trying our best to polish this game and make it playable. Several major bugs have been fixed and the current state of the game is functional. We're optimizing the way we load data from files and I've also added a part of the plot to the game document, but I don't want to spoil the entire story. It's just a draft and I plan on editing it much more. I will continue organizing the document and making it more readable.

Thanks for reading,
Tommy

Found a couple bugs as I was about to push a large new feature. Expect prediction and rankings to be working sometime Friday. Cheers.

Here are more details on our first project, the OpenVisualizer JSON interface. The project turned into something a little more complicated than we thought, and we did not have much time to work on it before the presentation. So we thought it would be best to lay out exactly what we're trying to do in a blog post.

This interface will provide an easier and more convenient way for users to send and receive data to and from virtual motes.

Current communication with OpenVisualizer motes involves CoAP over IPv6. This can be difficult for less sophisticated machines that do not have IPv6 enabled, such as the Raspberry Pi. Interacting over CoAP is not very intuitive even for users with IPv6. The easiest way is to download a Firefox add-on called CoPPER, a CoAP user agent, and play around with that. JSON-based communication through a RESTful API, on the other hand, is much easier to use. Since this project is trying to expand its audience, usability improvements are very important.

We will have to rewrite some of the communication algorithms in the CoAP library to deal with JSON data rather than IPv6-based addresses. Hopefully we'll have this done by the next time we present. More updates will come soon!
