Feedback on the concept explored by the sketch model

Client 1:

This is a nice setup. This portion of the game is probably well proven tech, so to be honest, I'm not sure you needed to do this testing at this stage. Having said that, this would be a necessary step for a final prototype.

Client 2:

I feel like this is a problem that has been solved before - shooting galleries are definitely 'a thing.' I wonder if there are any products that are more off-the-shelf and less custom?

Either way, I love the idea!

Reviewer 3:

I am guessing that this is proof of concept for being able to detect the laser hitting the target? Definitely an essential part of the game! I know you said that it takes about .5 seconds to light up the LED for this model, but I imagine the threshold to detect whether or not the target has been hit is a lot simpler? .5 seconds is a long time to hold a laser on a target. It will need to be much quicker than that, but since the computer will just need a binary on whether or not the target is hit, this should not be too difficult with better sensors.

Reviewer 4:

Addresses one of the most critical parts of the room in how the laser would register as a hit.

Reviewer 5:

From the presentation and the comments of the customer it seems that lasers and laser detection are a technical challenge for these games, so it is a relevant concept to explore in a looks-like model. Even though the specific concept or question explored is not explicit, from the presentation of the sketch model it is understood that one of the main challenges in this process is the size of the target and the sensing technology employed within it.

Feedback on the execution of the sketch model

Client 1:

Seems well made, and nicely executed.

Client 2:

It's great that you came up with a solution to how to sense it.

Reviewer 3:

This was a good sketch model to show the audience that the sensors were working. In reality I don't think the light will be needed since the mechanism to indicate the user that the target was hit was that it would fall over, right? That would definitely be a worthwhile model to make to ensure the time needed to hit a target isn't too long for it to activate the motor.

Reviewer 4:

Good execution, however, would distance be an issue? How far can a person be to register a hit, and does the strength of the laser dissipating? An upcoming obstacle might be concentrating the laser into a point to get accurate results.

Reviewer 5:

Increasing the number of sensors seems to work from the testing completed in the presentation of the sketch model; however, it would be beneficial to include some conclusions as to whether this solution is sufficient for the dimensions of the room. Can the lasers be reflected in towards the sensors? For the sensors in place, how big is the target? How far can the sensor be?
