Abstract prototypes

From WikID

An abstract prototype is a (4‐6 minutes) movie about an innovative product idea including a storyline in the form of a narration, which tells what the new product can do in a ubiquitous environment, and what the innovative aspects of the concept are. This narration is the basis of the abstract prototype. A second important element of the abstract prototype is an enactment (i.e. a rich visual presentation). And the third essential element in the abstract prototype is the use of augmented reality as a means to mimic the use scenario of the ubiquitous product and record the interaction with the new design.

Here is a collection of abstract prototypes, made by students of the Advanced Design Support course 2011 at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering of the Delft University of Technology. These Abstract prototypes are the results of the second part of an educational exercise, in which students have created a concept for an incremental innovation of an existing product which they had to present in an abstract prototype. Hereto a combination of ubiquitous technologies had to be applied with the goal to improve a selected aspect of an existing product such as new functionality, function and price trade off, performance, energy consumption, information richness, and/or user experience.

(BTW, Other types of prototypes and models can be found at: Model making, Prototyping).
