As part of this survey, the team asked participants to prioritize twenty-five wishlist items. Based on the ranking, the top 25% are shown here:
The orange bars indicate the total points assigned to each request based on the number of users who classified it as most important, very important, etc. This information can be considered as the team perfects the technology. Many thanks go to everyone who participated in the survey or offered suggestions via other avenues.
Extended time is alive in the lab.
