It's worth remembering that one of the potential uses of the SoC is for things 
just like this; researching a development avenue that otherwise no one would 
have the time/energy to investigate.  Even if you don't end up with anything 
worth implementing directly related to your topic, if you've pushed forward 
the ideas in this area and can come up with ancillary benefits, I think that 
should be considered quite a success.
