Playtesting Audio Prototype 2.0
The big target that we hit this week was the finishing of our Audio Prototype 2.0. No longer just a tech demo, it contains the full script and flow of the experience. Moreover, though the assets used are still not final, we have established a pipeline for video processing and exporting that will streamline work on this exhibit in the future.
More excitingly though, the team held our first playtest of the new audio prototype today. We had 28 people come and try out our exhibit: 23 fellow ETC’ers, 4 faculty, and even one student from the biomed department. The feedback
was promising: Most people understood the message of the exhibit – feeling frustrated by poor hearing and then excited by the simulated cochlear implant. We have also gotten many suggestions about improving the design with “replay sound” options and clearer transitions. The team is excited to polish our prototype towards a finished product.
Today’s playtesting of our Audio Exhibition Prototype 2.0 was a success!
