OSNews, Generic OSes Hobbies. Where would the computer industry be without them? Arguably, there wouldn't be a computer industry had it not been for hobbyists in the first place. The ineffable need to scratch an itch does still percolate even in this closed down world of big mainstream technology from big companies opposed to the little guy innovating. OSNews asks, what are you working on? We want to hear from you about your hobby projects (technology related or otherwise) to get a sense of what the community is cooking up for love of it, rather than because you're paid to do so. Share and enjoy!

I started developing a 3D game for the iPhone OS (which is now calles iOS) late last year. I work 3 days per week as a software developer (paid of course) at a bank and on the game for the rest of the week on my own.

Just finished the menu system an heck I even did it resolution independent so it's great an all kinds of displays including the new iPhone 4 and the iPad as well as Android phones in the future!

I'll even compose my own symphonic soundtrack for it, I have some experience in that area.

Hell, it's a lot of work for one dude, but on the other hand so much fun! Creativity unleashed! :-)
