SET team (feedback of Juxebox) Suggestions PLEASE March 29, 2009

Hi experience designers,


This is the SET team:


This is what we were thinking of doing, for the feedback portion of the jukebox.

We are going to build a box with 6 slots and boxes (one for each of the performance choices), and there is going to be a 6 balls with different icons on it. The person will choose which ball to put into the slot that matches the icon. So if it was “king for a day”, then there would be an icon of the crown on the ball, and so the person will know to put that ball in the corresponding slot. And we will have 6 different colours so the person can easily tell them apart.

There will be one of us students standing at the back of the box with slots, to see which ball has been chosen. We can tell what they have chosen by the icon on the ball, and also the ball will fall into that box. The feedback the person will receive is a silhouetted action behind the scrim curtain. So if the person picked “king for a day “it would be a person holding a crown to their head. Or if it were a “rock star” then it would be someone holding a guitar”. .. etc.

We also plan on having music corresponding the action chosen. So like rock music, if that icon was chosen. What we were thinking of doing was having speakers, and a lap top behind, and when that icon is chosen we will click a file on the lap top that will play that music.


Is there any suggestions on how to create a better sound feedback???



 Cause I’m afraid that having someone stand by the laptop waiting to press the file for the sound will take to long? The reaction time might not match, and this might not be such a good feedback for the person putting in the ball..????

Feel free to leave suggestions on how to make the feedback experience better. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The SET Team.

After multitudes of Photoshop fun

This picture is pretty much a perfect description of my personality, bright, colourful and full of sillyness. That propeller hat is something I’ve always wanted! The problem was,  I had and still have a big head and so none of them would fit my big head , as a child you can imagine how traumatizing this was 😦 The ball pit brings back so many memories from my childhood any time there was a ball pit, that’s where I would be. I’d have to say the most memorable ball pit story  would be  when I went to  African Lion Safari*sings* with my over paranoid aunt. I was in the pit of colourful bliss and my aunt was yelling at me saying there could be a knife or something sharp at the bottom! Naturally, terrified, considering I was 4, I climbed out quickly fearing my doom. I told my Mom the story when I got home and my Mom said “Your aunt was just worried that’s all, theres nothing sharp in ball pit’s, they have people to check them everyday.” Well as usual my Mom saved the day and ball pits and I remained close friends. That is till I grew too tall and too old:(  OHHH to return to those blissful days when  I could swim in a sea of colour with not a care in the world.   Photo credit goes to http://flickr.com/photos/wakajawaka/1243561409/sizes/l/ and http://savetherobot.files.wordpress.com/2007/11/535full.jpg
