A few days ago, I had the privilege of speaking at the Harvard Innovation Lab about the importance and value of prototyping. Using actual projects we’ve completed at Terrible Labs as examples, I illustrated several prototyping tools and techniques that ranged from low-fidelity paper models to very polished and functionally-rich prototypes – all built without writing a line of code.
