Comments on function-related aspects

Client 1:

As I mentioned to one of your colleagues, I have some concerns about this design and how easy it might be for players to tip the whole contraption over.

Looking at your rendering, I see another major concern: there are supposed to be electronics inside this vacuum mechanism, but it sits on caster wheels and moves freely around the room. How are you planning to get power to the electronics? Batteries are out - we don't want to incur the parts or labor cost to keep replacing them.

Reviewer 3:

I understand why the vacuum has wheels as you want to make the team know they'll be taking the money with them (in the game context). However, how will you make sure that the teams don't actually try to roll the vacuum around? Will the wheels just be locked up and bolted to the floor?

Reviewer 4:

So your render is really nice but what plastic tubing are you planning to use ? Also, it seems like something that will get dirty and tangled really quickly. Also how heavy will this box be // large ?

Reviewer 5:

The assembly and function of the rendering are a little difficult to understand in terms of their sub components, especially the squiggly translucent parts.

Comments on form-related aspects

Client 1:

Aesthetically, your renders are very nicely done. I would have liked to see some more work done on the tubes to indicate length and material - they look unfinished right now.

I think that the handle is going to be awkward to use given the dimensions you listed. That looks like it has a radius of about a foot, and it's going to be down by people's knees. This would be a great case for another sketch model to determine the optimal height.

Reviewer 2:

The rendering is done quite nicely, although I wish there are more details on it - what would the vacuum be made of? Would it be better to include more details on the sides of the box, to make it look more sturdy and practical? Where would the LEDs for the hoses actually be located? Are the hoses all of different lengths/ how did you design them?

Reviewer 3:

Great rendering, looks realistic! What material do plan to make the hoses out of? Have you tested different materials to see how they diffuse light to get the effect you want?
