Feedback on the concept explored by the sketch model

Client 1:

Good, I'm happy that you went with tiles and lights instead of true moving parts. That was a great compromise.

Reviewer 2:

As above, I think the Chladni Plate with sand patterns sound very cool! It is not something people get to see/ experience often, so it's great that you incorporate it into the game. My only suggestion would be to work on the aesthetics of the box - right now, it seem a little out-of-place in a ancient-Egypt themed room (like, in the middle of a room with ancient hieroglyphs and medallions there's this very modern transparent box with metal plates & electronics?) You may want to decorate the box into a treasure chest or something more ancient-y and perhaps only have the top transparent, so that it fits the theme and room more?

Reviewer 3:

I love the concept of the Chladni plate--I wish the website could have shown it in action. It would be great to test the clarity of the designs it produces as well as its ability to be reset repeatedly. While the sketch model does a great job of building a working model, it would be even better to see what design question was being answered.

Reviewer 4:

This is definitely the coolest part of the room and I think users would think this is magic when the images change. It would be great to interact with if all of the necessary components between the driver and the different touch sensors can be implemented successfully. However, this is a slightly complex system that might not be robust enough with very rough users. Just be careful!

Feedback on the execution of the sketch model

Client 1:

I think material choice could make this a really interesting visual piece. If your tiles were made of clear plastic and then painted the LED's could really be interesting. Each individual tile could in essence become a light box. Sounds could also be added for more feedback to the guest.

Reviewer 2:

The sketch model seem pretty close to what the storyboard depicted, as for how to improve the 'looks-like' part of the concept, see above. As for the work-like part, I am not entirely sure I could see from the website how it actually worked/ not worked (the electronics/ components assembly looks cool though). It would have been nice if there's a video of how the different patterns are made!

Reviewer 3:

The model looks great--I like how time was spent building the electronics and mechanical function. Again, I would have liked to see iterations on the model.

Reviewer 4:

You did a great job with this! This was not the easiest thing to assemble and it looks great with the box! Once again, my biggest concern is the rigidity and durability of this sensitive component. The box is a good idea and it needs to be pretty strong, especially given that a lot of other games involved removing an object from a box. For that reason, I may encourage you to touch with simply touching the box once for it to reset before the team has a chance to try to tear it apart.
