Initial Multitouch Build Timeline

This is the initial timeline for the AudioTouch project. As I make progress, it is possible that things may move away from the timeline, but I will be doing my best to keep things as close to the timeline as possible. Since this project requires two main parts, hardware and software, I will be starting with the hardware end since this is what needs to be stable in order to develop working software. I started designing a proof-of-concept musical application already, but will rewrite it in time for week 5. Further software progress really won’t start until the table design is relatively finished (by week 8).

Timeline
Week
Plan
1
Research materials and price out costs
2
Order samples and buy/order some parts. Establish Aesthetic Ideas.
3
Test and order/buy other needed parts. Plan out the table fabrication.. Rewrite simple music software proof-of-concept.
4
Begin table construction and wire IR LEDs to the table frame. Continue software proof-of-concept.
5
Finish proof of concept. If time, continue table construction.
6
Continue on table construction. Write out other possible finals musical applications. Decide on final coding application (vvvv, flash, flex, processing, etc.).
7
Finish table construction (paint, hardware, etc). Wire speakers to table.
8
Begin mapping out of general code to create musical software.
9
Start coding software and fix any problems with table’s setup (ie. camera, projector, IR filter etc)..
10
Continue coding on musical application. Prepare for ICAM 160A showing. Fix any minor problems.
11
Develop more musical application ideas. Continue coding.
12
Continue coding.
13
Continue coding.
14
Test and continue coding.
15
Alpha testing with other users.
16
Continue coding and add ideas from alpha testers.
17
Start beta testing with kids and adults. Fix code and add in ideas from the beta testers.
18
Continue more beta testing. Fix problem code found from beta testers.
19
Make sure table and other hardware is fully functional. Fix any minor issues.
20
Test, test, test. Make sure everything is completley stable for showing.
