Shown below is a video of one of my suitemates testing out my project! It was great to be able to show off my project to someone who knows that I’ve been working (and struggling, haha) on this for a while but has never actually seen it in action.
He tested it out without much prior knowledge or instructions and was able to figure out almost immediately how things worked! It was encouraging to feel that my project does have at least some intuitive design. He also found it nice that the user’s interactions with the Arduino instrument and the pj5s sketch were linked in a musical way—this too was very encouraging, as I personally liked my own idea of using music as a means of engagement. All in all, this was some valuable input to receive!
