DECO 7230 Digital Prototyping journal- week 9

Exercise — Take home Each of you will receive a “block” that represents a new digital token

Because the block can glow with color, I want to create this concept. When you are doing your assignment, you can code the program into your blocks. It can record the process of the assignment. When the process of assignment begins, the block will show green. When the deadline is coming, the block will turn to red. It will become more and more brighter. It can help students or workers remind them to do the assignment.

Because blocks are aware of other blocks in their vicinity. Blocks can connect and communicate with other blocks. I also want to make the blocks record some memories, like the Google Drive. The block can store memory and share it to other blocks. User can choose what kinds of memory to share. It is really convenient and useful.

New development in the prototype

Make Grid become became larger

Because I need to do is make the interactive prototype different from the original Tic-Tac-Toe game board, and show the nature of musical chairs. I had combined what I had learned on unity tutorials and Youtube unity courses.

I had made the grid larger, add more grids and the track on the game board. players can play on a larger grid space, the character move on the track just like what we do in musical chairs game, and the game become more challenging now.

The new interface of the prototype

Add Start Panel

When users open this prototype, there will be a start panel for users to input their name.

Users can input their name in the prototype, which is represents themselves. It can improve the functionality of the prototype.

Example coding for Start Panel in unity:

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
