Comments on function-related aspects

Client 1:

It looks like you have a nice functioning prototype and software program written. These looks very usable . Will there be any issues with other parts of the players bodies getting too close to the rocks and triggering them?

Reviewer 2:

This is a very nice model. I was wondering if further tests might be needed to see if there is any scenario that that the sensors cannot recognize the touch. When players are playing with enthusiasm, they might not pay attention to touch the jelly beans properly but at the same time they expect the sensors to catch their touch even if it is a very short one.

Another thing that I was thinking would be good to consider is the location of lights. During the game, players may hit the jelly beans instead of gently touching them and this might cause damage to the lights. My suggestion would be to make sure the lights will be located under some kind of clear plastic. The plastic will protect the lights while allowing the light to pass by.

Reviewer 3:

I dont now much about software, so what you have been able to put together is really impressive to me. Some comments:

-You mention a "score" in your code design. How do the players know their score/if it has been reset?

-The demo is really nicely done, and a great addition to this page.

Reviewer 4:

Looks pretty good! I think there was a clear and defined goal that you were trying to achieve, and the proof of concept looks really promising. Implementation is definitely going to be the more tricky part, but it certainly seems feasible. I'm assuming there's a sensor in each of the holds, with one central computer that communicates the logic to each of the holds? I'm not sure if you were thinking about going this route, but that's the way I'm thinking about it, but considering alternatives might be good before you put the whole thing together. It looks great though, nice job!

Reviewer 5:

Your demo works really well and I think your model can be easily expanded to the entire room. You will need a lot of sensors but I think this will be fine since the jelly-beans are attached to the wall and it should be fairly easy to get power to them.

Reviewer 2:

It would be good if the locations of the LED lights were shown in the video. This would help us understand better how the glowing jelly beans look like.

I think for the jelly beans, 3D printing them would be a good idea. Currently, the rock climbing elements shown in the video don't really look like jelly beans.
