IP over Two Tin Cans and a Piece of Wet String
Alternatve Title: Experiments with modulation and encoding for the transmission TCP/IP over a novel acoustical local-area network link.

A common saying in networking circles is that you can run the Internet Protocol over anything, even two tin cans and a piece of wet string. Various other stupid^H^H^H^H^H^Hinteresting networking technologies have already been demonstrated, including carrier pigeons and bongo drums. Now it's time for UCL to demonstrate our leadership in networking, with an implementation of IP over two tin cans and some string.

Experience required: C or C++ programing ability. Practical hands on attitude. Basic idea about signal processing. Sense of humour.

And no, I'm not joking - although the project subject is funny, the project is real. If you attempt this project, you'll learn a lot, solve some real problems, and do quite a bit of scientific experimentation.
