We took our prototypes to the Brecon Beacons and immersed them in a natural environment, and then got people to interact with the prototypes whilst asking them questions and receiving feedback which we recorded. This was very useful and gave us information for further developments.
On the following Thursday session we took our prototypes into PEL, using panoramic images taken on the two trips as the background setting. We also took a trip to Taff Trail and gathered leaves, stones and sticks to making the environment more realistic since it enhanced the participants, touch, smell, sound, and sight. We also played background sound which helped significantly.
We had a mixed reaction from the people we immersed in the environment with out prototypes. Some seemed to take it as a joke, some seemed too uncomfortable to get an accurate reading from but others seemed interesting by the concept and gave us some useful feedback.
