Hello, This is my first post and I am sorry if this is the wrong forum for posting this question.

I am a computer engineering student and I willing to make an augmented reality browser for android as a graduation project(something like Layar and Wikitude); however, I want to make it from scratch(without using any Augmented Reality API like the ones Layar provide), I want the application to be smart and to be able to detect stuff through image recognition and back it up with locations provided through GPS and I am willing to use Google Maps API for fetching Points of interest and other APIs for different uses...

I have very basic android programming experience and average java programming experience. I am going to work in a group of two and I have a 10 month period to make the app.

The question I hope anyone would help me answer is :

Can it be done or do I have to look for another graduation project? If yes, what materials(books, tutorials,...) should I start searching for if I want to make this project better?

I appreciate any help regarding this question...

Sorry for my bad English...
