For the final, I am currently thinking about continuing work on my midterm project. I still like the idea of creating something practical, and considering how much of a challenge this has been so far, I don’t want to give up before it’s just the way I want it.
In addition to cleaning up and simplifying my code, I would like to incorporate the following elements into this app moving forward:
1) Make it prettier: I have zero artisitic ability or design experience, but right now it doesn’t look at all interesting or attractive, and I would like to find a way to redesign it to be more aesthetically pleasing. I am currently debating whether or not I want to change the background scenario (like a cocktail party setting) or if I even want to go more abstract.
2) Add video functions. In addition to timing the 30-second pitch, I would like to incorprate a video feed off of the camera that would allow the user to record themselves as they practice, and replay so they can see the visual aspect of their presentation as well as the words themselves. Is the user smiling enough? Is the body language appropriate for the pitch? This would involve not only using video capture, but the ability to replay at will.
