Fixing control panel & navigating constellation storyboard comments

Client 2:

I think this is a very cool idea -- getting the gameplay right, so this feels "real" and not hokey will be the key to success!

Reviewer 3:

Very innovative concept!

A few things to keep in mind are making sure the telescopes are robust to use and the manual is super sturdy.

Also, could you change the difficulty at all?

How many constellations would you have to find?

Would a group of 15 have a lot of bored members?

Client 4:

Great ideas!

I like the visuals.

My thoughts:

- Projected stars, a la a planetarium, would be a cool visual effect for people to play with.

I love the idea of finding constellations - nobody knows how to do that anymore.

- For the scrolling screen idea - how do you plan on getting the stars go 'glow' and flicker?

Would they be backlit and translucent?

A printed graphic might look too flat and... well, flat.

- I love the lite-brite idea!

The plastic pieces shouldn't be too hard to make robust or easily replaceable.

And who doesn't love a lite-brite?

- Kristina's idea of the audio and visual clues for tracing out the patterns is interesting.

- Keep up the ideas of the star charts!

Coming up with a cohesive idea will be difficult.

Large pieces of electronics (a giant touch screen) may be cost prohibitive, unless you know of a way of doing one relatively cheaply.

Great ideas!

Client 2:

Nice drawings, the conceptual intent is clear -- looking forward to now seeing all your sketches that flesh out the details!

Here we go...

Reviewer 3:

Site looks great, but for some sizes of window, the white name links get lost in the white background.

The text over the photos is okay, but would be clearer if it were bellow or above the photos.

Not very cohesive, but good!
