In April 2019 the Interaction Design Foundation tweeted an article from their archives about rapid prototyping. Attached to the tweet was a short video of someone demonstrating a paper prototype. The response, mainly to the video clip, divided the design world in two. It was either “waste of time!” or “fantastic!”.
The video was not credited, so James and Per turn detectives for this episode and hunted down the source of the video clip, discover the back story and context plus discuss the benefits of low fidelity prototyping and rapid learning.
At the end of the episode, we share the full background to the prototype.
