Update on Device

Hi guys,
I've been working mainly on designing the device. It is still in progress, but this is what I have so far.

So, I was thinking that the monitor is planted on the wall. I was debating if I should have the whole face option or individual feature on the bubbles or maybe a combination of both.. The cushion part of the chair is going to have the ability to elevate which I will quickly illustrate, and Flavia also suggested to show how Debra is interacting with it, which I think is a good idea, but it brings another question, which is How is she interacting with it?? I know in Keith's board it is mostly controlled using motion, but we've also been talking about using voice command and drag-and-drop as an option. ..or maybe she will be able to use all three of these control technique on this device. Any last minute input would be appreciated, but I might just combine all of these features for this week, and we can narrow it down for next weeks..

  1. I imagine her going to her vanity, and the machine recognizes her and says "Hello Debra" ; then something of the sort of "How would you like to look today?" Then Debra's visual library database appear in the bubbles for her to choose her look. She drags eyes, lips, or a whole face, etc, into her own face in the center. We'll narrow this down as a group, for now it's good to make clear her options are in the floating bubbles, like you did.
