Project Ideas
;Expected results: A working method for interfacing with a simple robot; additional features within MB to ease interfacing; and full documentation of how to recreate successful projects (that a classroom could use); communication (we do not want to guess what experiments you are doing by yourself--do not be shy to send emails, videos, pictures DAILY!!!)
;Knowledge prerequisites: Understanding of JavaScript (Music Blocks source code) and robotics (no particular method requested, just make sure it is free/libre); demonstrable documentation and self-management skills; NOTE: we value quality, clear ideas over expensive or pretty robots

;Brief explanation: [ Music Blocks] has some examples already, but it would be nice to have one ambitious student really work for the summer to make new creative, thoughtful code everyday. (You will be expected to code in the Music Blocks language on a daily basis.) Secondary, but important goals, are bug reports when bugs are found, feature suggestions, and overall good and frequent communication with the Music Blocks team.
;Expected results: Quality examples sent daily; variety of styles; runs entire gamut in terms of blocks used (we want a number of great examples for each and every block feature); organized documentation of all examples created, which can be finalized in the final weeks of GSoC
;Knowledge prerequisites: Understanding of Music Blocks as a programming language; A good proposal is one that has a well-thought out and detailed list of music projects for each day of GSoC (time-frames, blocks used, musical styles, name of music to be transcribed); experience with music and composition/theory is a definite plus.
