Feedback on the concept explored by the sketch model

Client 1:

I think there are some unresolved problems involving how players walk around the room, how the chocolates slide, and how chocolates are ensured to be in the right part of the grid. Are there tracks? What keeps the chocolates from being flipped on their sides or rotated? If there are walkways around the chocolates they should be shown in your model--I think they are going to affect how the chocolates are moved around. How are they constrained to two DOF? There is definitely some more development that needs to be done here.

Client 2:

- When this is built to scale, people will climb on them. They just will. So they have to be built to withstand that.

- Built to the size you are proposing, the guests will HAVE to climb on the pieces to slide them. Otherwise, they cannot access the center of the puzzle to move them.

- Even at the scale that you're talking about, I promise you people will pull the pieces up and move them instead of sliding them. Especially if that is the faster, easier way of solving the puzzle.

- Even if you bolt them into tracks, they'll still find a way to pull th pieces out. We've had guests sheer 1/4x20 steel bolts out of box steel frames because they've decided that 'tearing this piece of scenery off must be the answer.' Where there is a will and 5 people, there is a way.

Reviewer 3:

It seems like the patterns that were designed are significantly different from one another and worked out what would be like to slide around the pieces on the board.

Reviewer 4:

If it is a looks-like sketch, I suppose I wouldn't want to know much about the mechanism behind while there are no videos or visuals that I can refer to.

Reviewer 5:

I really liked the sketch model and I think it was used in a useful way -- I think that the game does look like it would be fun. From the presentation, it also seemed like the point of the looks-like was to also tell what patterns would work well for the computer vision stuff, which seemed like a really valuable thing to test for. It also says on the description that the goal was to find out what it means to to have a 3D version of a sliding game, but it seems to me that the 3D version of the sliding game seems the same as the 2D version of the sliding game -- which is good to know, I guess, unless you wanted the 3D version to be different from the 2D version.

Feedback on the execution of the sketch model

Client 1:

The model doesn't address all of the issues you have mentioned and I suspect there are additional issues (mentioned above) that still need to be accounted for.

Client 2:

Awesome model pieces! You definitely got the look of chocolates spot on. That's actual much harder to do than people might think - to get the color theory right. Well done.

The sketch model looks beautiful. Those chocolates almost look real!

Reviewer 5:

I thought that these chocolates were super well-executed! They look really realistic and look like actual chocolates! I like how you shaped them and painted them individually in order to test them! I also think it was pretty smart to do a scale model, as it might have been hard to do a huge chocolate, and for the purposes of what you wanted to accomplish for the looks-like, it definitely is enough. Overall, you did an awesome job and I think everything looks really good!
