Unhappy Final Year Project Suggestions..


Hello everybody!

I would appreciate if anybody give me some suggestions/give me some topics suitable for my final year project.

I have been using linux (fan of Ubuntu & Knoppix, tried many distros from puppy linux to Watt OS and likes) since when I was in 11th standard and few months ago I had thought to develop my final year project on:

> anything cloud computing related developed on linux platform? well making a simple cloud app wont fit in as that app. should have some punch in its purpose of deployment

> a live distro ? i mean hey.. i can go for one..if not from scratch..but still it won't be a big deal..will it be?

After all there are many distros around, so will it satisfy my supervisor enough for scoring good marks?

> a clustered set of computers used for solving a scientific problem or simply providing a demo of a clone of wolram alpha like omputational engine?

> a bluetooth based web app on nux platform using J2EE (simple MVC arch. based).
app used of for location based advertising?

> balancing a toy helicopter using an embedded linux computer platform?
out of my budget??
Suggestions are welcome..

And the most important thing, no group of students can make the project; it has to be done individually!

I would answer the question with a question: What do you want a job doing, and keep within the limits of what jobs you can get (e.g. no point in hoping for a job in google if you live in China :-)
I've just had a young guy do that stage(final year bsce 2008/9). He had a multitouch project in chuck (yes, chuck) but why chuck was the biggest part of it; that's passe now and everyone is doing it. Ditto gps systems. If you are good with assembler, hack the ps3 to be able to install linux; Anything that involves the use of several VMs is also good.
I don't know what degree you are doing. How about a tech support box? Something that will have windows (4 or 5 versions) and linux (6 versions) in the one box, so the one guy can set up his internet or graphics or whatever he is supporting and see it in all the different systems.
If it's pure programming, set your sights, and go. The acid test is: Are you prepared to give this 4-5 months of your life and then will you have something to write up afterward. Don't end up having to change the title on your thesis into "AN EXPLORATION INTO something" when you can't finish the code!

sorry for not telling about my degree/stream.

This project will be for fulfilling my B.Engg. in Computing final year project.

And yea.. infact thats what matters the most that I in the end if i have to step back then its all over! So, in that case I would definitely go on with a topic which is a little bit challenging as well as relatively new and upcoming also if not upcoming then too it can be something which is useful or whose purpose is quite good enough to be presented in front of whole the University ppl.

The four color theorem was proved by means of computer calculation (among other steps). Do the same thing for the Collatz conjecture, and you will not only get high marks; you'll have undying fame among mathematicians. :>

hey, thanks for such a great input!

more suggestions please.. I would be happy enough if i have choices in my hands. Anyways, is there a possible way out for this "Collatz conjecture/problem" ? I suppose deploying it on a clustered system and then verifying it as I saw it here:

Check the "current evidence" section below on the same page^

Of course, that's not evidence toward an "up or down" answer. That's just five gazillion demonstrations that we're nowhere near a solution.

And throwing computer power at it, if that's all you're going to do, will never work if it turns out that the answer is "no, it doesn't always converge to 1".
