Final Project Idea

I would like to attempt at incorporating science into my final project by making an interface where the user can pick and choose different genes to swap in and out, and through that they’ll learn what diseases come about with these mutations. I see a 3D DNA strand that is rotatable, perhaps with the use of LEDs to specify various locations that one could interact with and have a screen pop up on the side with the results of their interaction.

This project would require a lot of scientific research, just because I think that the specificity of a disease’s genetic origin may not be super clear. But I want the user interaction to be a distance away from the projected screen to give it a more future scientific feel. I also want to be able to explore the use of cameras and with that have the user’s entire body interact with the piece instead of just one part.
