These dinosaurs were created by me.
The group members and their main contributions are; Kate Worth (worked with arduino and writeup), Matt Donovan (worked with flash coding and design), Torr Micha (helped everyone), Caitlin Gadd (art assets and animation), Elliot Maddox (arduino and button programming), Tim Troiano (flash coding) and I(art assets and animation, writeup and poster).
•Our design choice was to portray modern popular media stylization, with bright colors and cartoony figures. We wanted a certain unrealistic ambience with the sound-bed music and space background.
•We wanted the aim of the piece to be to allow the audience to have fun with the buttons and making the beat-boxing sounds and moving the dinosaurs. They could make it as crazy as they want or try and get a serious beat from it.
•Some interactive choices that were made were to make different beats with different tempos to allow the user to create what type of beat they wanted.
•We were successful in most everything we did, we achieved the ambience, and the sounds came out well, and the art assets and presentation were how we wanted.
•We did struggle, however, in building and fixing the button hardware, but we managed to get it working.
