Prototyping in 3 directions
We diverged our preliminary ideas into three categories: Safe, Bold, and Unexpected. Safe ideas addressed problems, adhered to all constraints, and were somewhat expected in nature because they may have been done before on similar machines. Bold Ideas addressed the ideas, but pushed the constraints a bit in favor of making something more original. The ideas we had that were fairly abstract in nature and might not respect all constraints were labeled as Bold. In respect to these three directions, testable prototypes were built for drip tray variations, compartment variations, milk systems, symbols, and digital interfaces.
