Malayalam LCD Display(under discussion)Edit

Project aims to build a module, consisting of an LCD panel and a controller section, which as a whole, can display Malayalam in proper fashion, as in usual PC's. Scope of this project is enormous as it offers Malayalam display for the whole range of embedded systems. Complexity of the project is equally high, as it has to handle the rendering issues and algorithms, which are handled by the rendering engine in a usual PC(ie. pango for GNOME... QT based for KDE... etc)

Hardware OGG player(under discussion)Edit

The ultimate aim of the project is to have a portable, complete multimedia system for the user, with which one can take pictures and videos, record it on free formats. Also it can act as a personal music player. Initially we expect to develop an ogg vorbis player, which can be later extended accordingly. So, design parameters also considers the scope for expanding the project to offer more...

Asterisk User GroupEdit

Asterisk is a great software that offers a lot in telephony. If anyone is interested, we could setup an asterisk based user group, which essentially does call forwarding to a group of volunteers available at the moment. That is, we have a system with asterisk in it, and the system is configured with the phone numbers of volunteers who wish to answer queries from people through phone during a given period of a day as they wish. So, asterisk can automatically forward the call from a user to the volunteer who is available at the moment. Interested students may list your names below.
