2011 Capstone Night

Complete capstone listing
One of this year's most popular capstone themes, the integration of education and gaming, also happens to be the subject of one of the award-winning projects: John Mondor's study of teaching geopolitics via gaming technology.
Ian McClure's and Joel Martin's capstones also examine technology's encroach into educational settings, while Elysa Woodhead has already launched a career teaching technical skills before she's even graduated college.
Shared creativity is another theme of this year's capstones, as seen in Chloe Lapointe's innovative comic book publishing platform, Corey Butler's peer-to-peer photography network, and Zack Glidden and Jade Damboise-Taplin's Indie Maine music and art label.
The iPad's multitouch interface provides the grist for another award-winning project, Jon Simpson and Zev Eisenberg's kinesthetic computing, while Ethan Welner and Dylan Watts will offer interactive tours of the Hudson Museum on the second floor of the Collins Center, via a custom iPad app they developed with the museum's curator.
A host of audiovideo installations will include three-dimensional projections, eight-point sound, randomly recombined movie narratives, and even an installation devoted to the bygone days of Maine's lumbermen.
Augmented Reality is a burgeoning field, and is represented at this Capstone Night by projects that map virtual 3-D images onto reality via cell phones and an ice-fishing rig that automatically videotapes fish biting at lures under the ice.
