Comments on function-related aspects

Reviewer 1:

Great work on the circuitry design and sourcing for parts. You also addressed an immediate concern of mine which was the large number of wires required to wire everything together. However, correct me if I'm wrong but the Adafruit PWM LED driver would only allow you to control the LED lights in the button? How is the Arduino going to sense if a button is pressed or not? Wouldn't you need another driver or board for that?

Furthermore, the RGB light button that you have sourced seems to be able to pre-program the light color combinations. You might want to see if its possible to pre-program the colors you want which may eliminate the need for the LED driver (just supply current). I couldn't read up more since there wasn't a datasheet available.

Reviewer 2:

I am not very proficient at electronics to exactly pinpoint design flaws. But, the language used by the creator helped me understand the basic concept well and I am very satisfied with that. It seems like a simple circuit that could be incorporated within the storyboard.

Reviewer 3:

The design uses widely available components for the controllers, lights, and buttons, which lowers cost and increases durability. It's helpful that different communication protocols were considered to address potential use cases. Would having the controllers behind the wall make it inconvenient to troubleshoot? Perhaps they can be relocated to a more accessible location.

Reviewer 4:

Sourcing of the parts that would be needed for the project was great. Using LED's is a great since they have a long lifespan. Great documentation of how the system will work

Comments on form-related aspects

Reviewer 2:

In my perspective, the form-related aspects could have been presented in a better manner to convey the design's implementation. The website lacked sufficient information or sketches or pictures to help me understand it. As far I could visualize, the design seemed like an exciting one with the right visual elements to attract the players.

Reviewer 3:

The renderings illustrate the hardware and circuits well. In the circuit system, colors are put to great use. Using contrasting colors and outlines instead of solid shapes could make the hardware renderings clearer.
