Taking a step back from our example of Howard’s Kissing Machine, our evaluation(I think that’s the correct term to use here) was based on the experience of using the kissing machine.  Do you think we would have different results if we performed this evaluation on the artifact itself?  And as interaction designers do you think we should do this activity with either the experience of something or the thing itself? Or is there something to be learned from both? This question came up because in Shaowen’s prototyping class when we used this, I believe we focused more on the artifact itself.
