Alone and as a team
Enjoyed it at first then got annoyed with himself when he couldn’t catch them
|No||6||Using both hands||Fast ones were hard to catch.|
Hand-eye coordination. Joked by saying the game was trying to rip families apart because they got so competative and annoyed with the game.
Said it wasn't very clear at the beginning but one player said as they were playing the game they thought that maybe it might have something to do with scientific data collection but it was only a passing thought.
|Yes||No||It was fun.|
Player one got very annoyed with the game and had to step back and pause for a bit. After a moment he tried again. Player two found it very amusing how annoyed player one got and was laughing quite hard. Player one was very competative with himself and was disappointed he couldn't catch some bugs, player two just laughed at him.
Kids 2-5 years old, parents 25-35 years old
Alone - parent set up game for child to play
Putting finger slightly in front of the bug. Child got better the more times she played.
|Fast ones were hard to catch.||Improve motor skills and hand-eye coordination.||No|
With having little ones the parents said that they never really have the time to read the information because it is mainly about the kids having fun. They woul like to read more but just have to look after the kids.
|Yes||No it was just fun.||At a young age it is just fun but there is lots to learn as they get older.|
|4||1-3 mins||20-30 years old||Alone||Seemed happy||Yes, it makes you think and uses your coordination.||No||2||Used two hands.||Fast ones were hard to catch.||Testing your coordination and eye-sight.||No||Said it was clear now I have explained it.||Yes|
That they were good at using both hands to get the bugs.
|Fun for both kids and adults. I'm very competative.|
|5||1-3 mins||35 years old||Alone||Happy||Yes||No||2||Thought ahead to predict where bug was going.||Plain pattered ones were easier.||Don't know.||No||I just wanted to play.||Yes||No. Learnt that my reaction is slow.|
It was fun. It was over very quickly. I enjoyed it more than I should have, I'm 35.
|Player went back to the game again.|
|6||5 mins||20-30 years old|
Alone and then as a team
|Happy||Yes||No||3||Just tried to hit it.||Fast ones were hard to catch.||Don't know.||No||Player didn't seem to think that it was very obvious that that is what it was trying to do.||Yes||Not really.||It was good fun.||The two players were very competative with each other and wanted to beat the other.|
|7||1-3 mins||50-60 years old||Alone||None||Yes|
Took me longer to catch them than I thought it would.
|1||Used several fingers and hit as quickly as possible.||Some were harder but I don't know why.||Testing your reaction time.||No||Didn't really think about it.||Yes||That I'm slow at catching them.||It was fun.|
|8||1-3 mins||20-30 years old||Alone||None||Yes it was alright.||No||1||Predict where it was going and follow it and hit it.||Fast ones were hard to catch.||Not sure.||Yes||Yes, the message at the start made it clear.||Yes|
No it was just intersting more than I actually learnt something.
|It's an interesting game.|
|9||10 mins||20-30 years old||Alone||Happy||Yes|
The pattern page freezes and doesn't show you anything.
|5||Determine where it was going to try to hit just in front.|
Fast ones were hard to catch and the more you tapped the harder it was to get them.
|It's a citizen science game but it is no obivous how exactly data will be used.||Yes||Clear from the text before the game.||Yes||Not really.||It is addictive, makes you want to play again and again.|
|10||1-3 mins||20-30 years old||Alone||Happy||Yes||No but it crashes sometimes|
About 20 times over 10 months
|Just follow and jab it. When they bounce you can predict where they go.||Slower are easier.||It's a citizen science game.||Yes||Not hugely - but it might be good that people don't know because it might put people off.||Yes||That patters make a huge difference.||It's fun.||This was a response from someone who works at the Eden Project.|
