At the start of this week, I handed in the submission of the prototype on Miro. And then each team appraised other team’s report, so the journal for this week is mainly based on the prototype feedback.

Later in the contact this week, we appraised the three teams we are assigned to as a team. The process we did it was that during the contact in the breakout room, our team members watched the 12 videos one by one. After each watching, we discussed our understanding of this project, including the pros and cons and then write appraisal in a google form. Then each of us four picked 3 projects and integrate all the appraisal from all members in the form.

In the workshop this week, we read through all 12 comments that have been teased out and put them on Miro. We discuss a little about the future teamwork and individual work. For the teamwork part, we planned to talk about it in the next workshop, for the Final Delivery Team Outcome due next week which means we have enough time and all of us have other assessment to do recently. We also talked with tutor about the future plan based on feedback from other teams.

I went through three appraisals three other teams provided to me. I listed two questions about my prototype at the end of the video and they gave suggestions about it.

One team asked if I would still use LEDs in the final prototype. In my plan, the full scale colour wheel mat will use screen to choose colour instead of the neopixel. Another suggestion from another team is that I should set levels in case kids use secondary colours too much. Only after the are familiar with how primary colours generates secondary colour, can they use secondary colours freely.

Other possible suggestions are:

  • Use a slide scale for user to move, touch and sliding colours
  • Use pressure and haptic feedback for user to sense and feel the mixing
  • For multiplayer: add music, recreating each other’s work (or memorizing and guessing), one describe and one mix

I may consider these questions if I have enough time to implement it.
