[PD] My project at IEM

I am in a similar situation, working on a thesis project for end of next 
semester and was also thinking about doing some GEM related work. the 
thing that scared me, is that I would have to fix some things beforehand 
to get something like an ogre external to work. and, yes, unfortunately 
this was already done for max at my school, so it would look more like a 
copy (too easy to do this for Pd...) But actually, I think it is not 
easy at all and it would be enough work for a trabajo fin de carrer.
so *my* current idea is to write some (earth) map viewer that can be 
integrated into gem.
in any case, dig into openGL, especially hardware shaders. a good set of 
shaders will attract a huge number of visual artists.
other ideas for GEM projects:
mobile device controllers for visuals, multiplayer gem mixers, make gem 
work as a webbrowser plugin, gem recipe book, multi screen video 
synchronisation (avoiding the use of quicktime), gem standalone 
screensaver, realtime network distributed render engine for particle 
systems and / or a fluid simulator or rigid body simulations
