In the last 2 weeks, I created a very close ‘Looks like feels like’ prototype of my physical product. My initial thoughts were it looked bulky and heavy, but it did make my physical object look strong. I used wood that was .50 inches thick.
While I was working in the Visible Futures Lab (VFL) I asked informally for some thoughts from the staff and other students. Some of the comments were:
“It’s an interesting shape”
“I thought you were creating a barn”
“What goes inside?” (I explain) “Oh make sense”
I got a mix of reviews, in my next iteration, I will use wood that is .25 inches thick.
