Computational Media Project 2 – Scuba Simulation Quiz Game

Project Overview:

This project will be a one-player educational interactive quiz game to inform

users on various scuba diving facts. To play the user will navigate their way

through a 3D underwater terrain in first person control as they search for

hidden treasure chests. Once a treasure chest is found the user will click on

it and a multiple-choice question will pop up. Upon answering the question

correct the user will collect a treasure point and continue on their search.

If they answer the question wrong they must try again. Once the user has

collected all the treasure the game is over.

The point of the project is to educate the user on scuba diving facts in an

interactive and engagingly fun way.

Digital Tools 2, Project 1 – Identify Subject Matter

User Interface Video Project Idea


For my user interface idea I plan to make a video depicting a species identification scanner tablet. This scanner will be able to scan any living thing like an animal or plant and identify the species as well as some informative facts on that specie.

The way it will work is that the user will hold up a glass or acrylic tablet that will scan the subject with a built in laser. Once scanned a video image or image of the subject will be on the screen as well as information about the species. Information of habitats, nature and gender of the subject may also be displayed.

This idea is targeted towards biologist researchers and scientists teaching and/or studying using it as a tool. It may also be used for tourists in maybe an aquarium or zoo.

Locations can include the Toronto zoo, wooded areas, gardens, fish tanks, green houses or on the streets.

Scanned subjects can be birds, dogs, cats, flowers, trees, fish etc.


The story may follow a group of scientists or tourists as they walk through the Toronto zoo or it may be a more informative video with a voce over talking about the different features and abilities of the user interface.
