Give live to my drawing

I wanted to create an image of a "cool programmer" for a website. So I draw this model based on some pictures I saw online. Then I scanned my drawing and this is the result.

Tools I used:

  • Adobe Flash
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • Retrieving data from a website.
  • The main app.
  • Twitter interaction.
  • Our app's filosofy.

Cyprus TV

A team project at University of Cyprus for the course of Web Technologies. The main idea of the project was the creation of an Android TV app which can provide informations for the TV schedule to the users. Also the users have the possibility to tweet a selected program and/or set an alarm (alarm rings 10 mins before the program's starting time).

My task was to retrieve data for the TV schedule from a website and create a structure with them. Also I designed all the images used for this app.

Teammates: Constantinos Lazarou, George Taliadoros.

Tools I used:

  • Adobe Photoshop
  • HTML
  • Java
  • Selection of the playable hand.
  • Gameplay screen.
  • How to calculate the preferable move.
  • Game over - Score screen.

PacMan with Kinect

A team project at University of Cyprus for the course of Computer Vision. The main idea of the project was the creation of the classic PacMan game which the user can control it with kinect.

My task was to manipulate Kinect API and calculate the movements of the user. Also I design the first screen (where the user choose a hand to play) and the last screen (the score screen with the option to replay). In addition I added sounds to the main game.

Teammates: Avraamia Kontou, Skevi Matsentidou.

Tools I used:

  • Kinect API
  • Visual C#
  • Welcome/Login screen.
  • Registration screen.
  • Home screen.

SocialFace

A team project at University of Cyprus for the course of Database Systems. The main idea of the project was the creation of a social network.

Teammates: Anna Kantzia, Maria Anastasi.

Tools I used:

  • Java
  • MySQL
  • Example XML.
  • PHP Script.
  • Script Results.
