Feedback on the concept explored by the sketch model

Client 1:

Pretty! How would it work? Are the wires sensed by touch, or do they actually 'pluck?'

Client 2:

This model looks like a fun instrument to play, especially at the eventual large scale.

Reviewer 3:

The instruments are key to the puzzle and fun for users to interact with, so well-crafted models would go a long way in immersing users in the Greek myth. It would be helpful to conduct more tests on different materials, finishes, and ornamentation and compare the effects and durability.

Reviewer 4:

Lyre is pretty and seems about the right size (about twice the size of the model). I think you could potentially even make it a bit bigger? Unsure if this would make the mechanics of detecting a pluck more difficult though.

Reviewer 5:

Good concept, fits into room theme. Will this instrument be wireless? If so, how would you prevent removal from room? If not, would it still be easily played?

Reviewer 6:

The Lyre is designed really well. I was initially worried that people without musical backgrounds would not be able to read the musical notes. However, I like how you have substituted it with Greek symbols that would make it easy to match and play the instrument.

Reviewer 3:

The lyre looks beautiful! The golden color and flower ornaments evoke the grandeur of Greek mythology. The durability of the strings may be an issue--perhaps buttons can be used instead for the mechanism.

Reviewer 4:

Model is pretty and appealing! Looks really nice and very in theme. Would be interested in seeing some exploration of materials for the final model (but beyond the scope of this milestone).

Reviewer 5:

Outstanding execution of looks-like model, with beautiful accents. Only potential improvement would be to use gold foil paint for the instrument instead, to give a more uniform and solid feel.

Reviewer 6:

As a looks like model, it is extremely well executed. I love the detail of the flowers that makes it really exquisite as an instrument played by the Gods instead of just a regular Lyre. However, I wonder how the player would position himself to play with it. As it would be most likely attached to the ground or on a table, he/she would not be able to pick it up and play it like a regular lyre.
