The third proposal was absolutely amazing to my project. I felt bad not having really done work during the Winter break, but it was a break that I needed.
I drew out a storyboard, had a diagram of the installation, and now I know what I want to do with my project.
I want to keep the sterile medical environment, but it does cause the user to feel disconnected, like a number in a system.
A cooler will hold the real organs that are sealed and ready to scan.
The vending machine is representative of buying. It also allows the project to function without supervision.
The vending machine will be crossed-over with automated check-out machines.
Carrying over the barcode, scanner, and receipt printer.
The organs have preserved well. Had to change the alcohol a few times, no it doesn’t turn red anymore, just a slight yellow. This means (according to the internet) that the organs are completely preserved. They’re a little harder, but pretty much the same. They also don’t smell as bad.
I’ll have to focus on making an intuitive design, interfacing, and aesthetics.
The vending machine will be made of wood, moving away from foam core, and I’ll be getting pushbuttons on a white vending machine.
