From Pillar to Cube

After seeing the many interaction problems with the pillar, especially with the lack of touchscreen, we decided that we can't ignore the calls to change how the product will work.

We decided to move away from the pillar idea to something else (again).

We brainstormed many ideas, from Dance Dance Revolution type interaction to Hyde Park.

In the end we went back to the idea of the voice carrying weight.  We took the idea of a balance

The main interaction will be with a cube.  Four of its sides will have touchscreens (tablets), with one being for information, the second to listen to public opinion, the third to record one's opinion, and a possible fourth function.  The vote will be done by placing the cube on one side of the balance.  When the cube is placed, the balance will show the current voting conditions.

Below are some basic models of the cube.
