Music Interest Project
##What does this even do?
Its all kinds of nifty.
Here's how it works:
- The web portion is a website that allows users to host a 'sound lounge' and select a radius from that location.
- Then, phones with the SurroundSound Android app that connect to that 'sound lounge' automatically upload all of their music library (names, not files) to the server.
- Then the server churns out a playlist based on what genres people around seem to like
- And then the host computer plays the music
- All the while, the Android app has a list of the current playing song and a list of the next upcoming songs, and has the ability to upvote/downvote songs
- And the server automatically removes or bumps songs based on votes!
Disclaimer: This was made in Februrary 2013 and is totally not representative of how well we can code.
There is a lot of sloppy code in this, and this is due to the fact that we had 36 hours to make this AND this was a long time ago.
So look at the idea, and recognize that we actually got it to work.
We plan to go back to this and actually release it... Sometime.
