rotating rings concept sketch comments

Reviewer 1:

I think the general idea of completing a circuit diagram to reactivate a robot is very compelling. It is something that I think participants will connect with and something that every kid has dreamed of doing. I think the major challenge for this concept is engaging a large group of people. Since humanoid robots are invariably human sized it will be very difficult to get 15 people around a single robot to engage in the challenge.

Reviewer 2:

Nice drawing, looks fun to play. I think the idea is definitely feasible. I am wondering how it would work for them not to move independently because if two of them are linked that actually makes the puzzle simpler (unless moving one causes another one to move but not vice versa). I would like to know more about how the robot feels for the user experience.

Client 3:

A very neat idea -- dialing in the rotating sections could be a cool puzzle (with this robot, or in other contexts).

I'm not sure how to backlight two different states / set of lines distinctly.

There may be other ways to contemplate the self-reset.

A neat idea, and visual gag opportunity.

partial instructions concept sketch comments

Reviewer 1:

I really like the idea of making the team interpret 2D drawings and convert them to 3D operations this is the kind of task that engineers are required to do and has real world value. The ability to provide additional drawings for teams that are stuck seems like it might be an effective way to decrease difficulty on the fly if a team is stuck. Although with technical drawings there generally are a minimum number of dimensions that define a constrained system less than that and it s under constrained or in this case unsolvable and more than that and unnecessary information is being provided and probably won t help solve the puzzle very much.

Reviewer 2:

I liked the drawing, the idea seems feasible. I don't understand how the instructions can be rest so more on that would be useful -- maybe it is a screen? Also more clarification on if it is a multi-step procedure and how that is communicated to the user.

Client 3:

Another good idea -- the concept of translating 2D instructions into 3D manipulation is a great idea.

inside the robot concept sketch comments

Reviewer 1:

I think this concept does a very good job of shedding the many of the constraints that limit the previous two concepts to get at a way to engage a larger group in a larger space. It might be easier to change the premise of the puzzle rather than send the group through a shrink machine but I think the puzzle type has promise. Although I m not sure I understand the difficulty scaling if there is no reset mechanism other than having two states. How could you provide easier blocks in better locations without human intervention? Would it be possible to instead have multiple input and output locations that could be activated based on the size of the group?

Reviewer 2:

This is my favorite of your ideas. More drawings of what the blocks look like would be good. I think this idea is feasible and could work well with the addition of more controls than just blocks.

Client 3:

An interesting idea -- fun large scale variant of the classic sliding tiles game.

I'm concerned about the self-reset, about powering the moving pieces (hopefully wouldn't be needed!) and getting the challenge level right, as this would be difficult to adjust difficulty on the fly.

But a neat and unique idea.

Overall concept sketch clarity and presentation

Reviewer 1:

I think that the presentation is very effective. It is both simple and clear. For the last image the height reference person is in a bit of a no-mans land making it somewhat unclear which image it relates to and makes it take another second to determine that it isn t part of the top view of the puzzle. Additionally what is the rectangle beside the man?

Reviewer 2:

The drawings are very clear, it was easy to see them all on your website. The second two ideas could benefit from an additional picture with another view.

Client 3:

Great drawings -- very well presented.

Some very unique ideas, and I love that you are thinking through challenges like self-reset and difficulty adjustment.
