More GUI

I have been working on loading .obj files into my program.  I am doing this so can load 3D objects in which I can use in my interface.  I can use Vector Magic to trace the outline and then use that outline in my interface.

I am also designing my overall program, and how it will fit together.  I am considering what architectural pattern to use.

Recently I have been looking into the interface design and implementation.  I have been created a storyboard of how the interface might work using PowerPoint.  At the moment I am going to have a augmented reality design.  I will have the interface projected over a simplified camera image of just the user.

I am going to use Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) as my graphical subsystem.  I am going to create the interface in a 3D environment.  I have been programming simple interfaces that will use the same concepts as the real interface, just to learn how it is down.

I have been playing with the Kinect libraries to see how they work.  I found that Microsoft is releasing a official Kinect SDK very soon.  So I plan to wait till that is released to see if it is worth using.
