Maze Generating algorithm

13jonesb

I'm doing a project, and it's making a maze generation/solving algorithm, the only issue is that I need an end-user, who I can interview and get feedback from about my project. Anyone got any idea what kind of person would need this/find it useful?

Thanks

I imagine there are some lab mice that would be very interested in such a thing.

Can you provide more detail? Is this generating, graphically, a 2D maze made up of solid lines? Like the maze you find in a magazine at the doctors office?

By the end of the project it should be, that's the hope.

Someone who thinks mazes are amazing, perhaps.

Call me old fashioned, but I prefer a maize maze.

Nice. Corny, but a pun is a pun.

Someone that's really good at it could be outstanding in their field.

I think that'd be interesting. Do you have a link?

I haven't even started coding this yet, first i've got to produce a project report and everything stating who it's for, and who the end user will be, that's what i've been trying to figure out here

Ah I see.

I'd think it'd be useful for labratory applications like tragiktimes said.

r/beermoney and add a little money and then you’ll get some hits.

When I was a kid I loved mazes, I did books full of them. Good for spacial skills in a way. Maybe a little tougher to do without a pencil these computer days. Maybe you could generate a maze and drop it on a draw program or something. Either way certainly an entertainment item I would think, much like word finding games.

agreed. that's kind of the end hope, something that gets me good marks, but also that i can keep on my pc for entertainment if needed.

You might go further on it but I don't know your capabilities. For example if you 'drove' through the maze (moved an icon/etc) it might be cooler game on a pc or tablet....pacman was sort of like that, but not a game I liked lol because it was not about the maze. Those early arcade games had huge difficulty levels. They made sure you didn't get too much for that quarter.
