Orion is my FYP (Final Year Project) and is currently in development. The concept will use the Kinect sensor to allow device control using natural user interfaces.
"Only with light can we uncover the darkness" - Light for Dark is a game I currently have in development. It follows the story of a child who inherits an old lamp from his grandfather which reveals to him what really lurks in the dark.
"Complete life's challenges one achievement at a time" - As part of our course we had a module on Android Application Development. Myself and a group of two others came up with lifechievements.

The first OOD project to be completed as part of our course was a Student Record System. This application could be used on the Command Line and also allow the user to interact with it through a GUI. The system allowed for the creation of multiple types of users, courses, modules, grades etc
