The past week we got a lot of feedback on our low-fidelity prototype from the rest of our DFA group. Boiled down, they were:
- What materials will you choose, why, how,… any specific colors/textures? etc.
- Focus on being solid on function and then move to aesthetics. Material constraints may influence how it looks.
- Make sure our design doesn’t exist already
In the future we’ll be thinking about these while making mid and high-fidelity prototypes. Our materials search is going to be thorough and probably somewhat lengthy. We should definitely make something that works first. And before all of this, we should probably look online so an exact replica of our design doesn’t exist.
Here’s the slideshow for our design process thus far!
PS: our design completely changed the week after the MSR(mid season review), making everything we said about the design mentioned in the slideshow (as well as everything in this post) obsolete. Stay posted for exciting updates. (!)
