How rapid is rapid prototyping? This question evokes different timelines in peoples’ minds. After attending FABLAB London prototype workshop I came out with a different perspective and a deep understanding of the role this process plays in initial  product development.

In the early phase of any product idea, the primary purpose of rapid prototype is learning – which assumptions make sense, which ones don’t. As Janja Song said during the workshop, “It is fine for a prototype to have issues and be ugly,” she says. “The goal of a prototype is to evaluate an idea”.

With a good product prototype it is easy to see if a product idea is worthwhile investing on. If it is not, it can be discard and move on to the next one.

Below are pictures from the workshop event.
