I would as sugjected do alot of research. If one plans ahead he is less likely to lose ground as he move forward. Ok, so say you have found nothing at least no one seems to have went the path you have made. Now what? It is up to you, make a moke up, then protype and refine. In the end you will have learned on your own if your Idea works.
Just off the top of my head it may work, i think.
