Following the Idea Presentaion, teams created what we call Sketch Models. A Sketch Model can be used to quickly test the feasiblity of an idea or test the play value of the concept. It should also be used to further develop the concept. Some sketch models are works-like, some sketch models are looks-like and some are a mix of the two. The following are the four sketch models that were presented by each team.
