Skidmore Meeting & Demo

Wednesday afternoon we went to the Greenberg Child Care Center at Skidmore College to test our prototype. This was the first time we observed how children interact with our product. We had a very successful demonstration using a game called Backyard Baseball. The kids really enjoyed using the puck. They played with the system for about two hours and the puck proved to be durable and functional. We plan to make another visit within the next few weeks. After this visit we have discovered some improvements that can be made. For instance, we plan on mounting speakers in the tent allowing the children to hear the sound effects within the game they are playing.
