Seminar: Why we Prototype

This year’s RJI Student Innovation Competition challenge is to create a program, tool or prototype for photo, video or audio verification. This is the first in a series of seminars to provide information that might be useful to teams who are going to enter this year. More info on the competition at:

How can we be confident we’re building the right product? We won’t know for sure until we put into the hands of the people who will actually use it. But we also can’t spend all our time and resources building the final product just to validate our original idea.
This is why we prototype.
In this seminar we’ll discuss why and how we prototype new product ideas, drawing on human-centered design methods. We’ll also introduce to a few great prototyping tools to help you take your product ideas from good to great.
