With the bat keychains created, I went to interview Shivang again to show him the new mementos and see his reaction. I found his reaction to be more lukewarm, and I felt more motivated by the fact that I took the time to lasercut a realistic looking bat for him. The fact that there were three bats did seem to connect more to the original memory of the cricket bat, as he immediately knew it was for each brother and he did mention that these bats did actually create an attachment for him. However, he also mentioned that the bat itself would be much more powerful, because of the specific weight and feel of that bat that he came to know so well.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
