Over the past 20 years, our community has embraced low-fidelity prototypes. We see many researchers using paper prototyping, mock-ups, and sketches to explore their ideas. It is easy to do and there are many good reasons for low-fidelity prototyping ; however, in exploring new routes in human-computer interaction, this is only the first step. In my experience, low-fidelity prototypes are helpful in killing bad ideas early in the design process but are insufficient in validating ideas and concepts—in particular, new interaction technologies beyond the classical (touch)screen. Many researchers, though, stop at the easy-to-do low-fidelity prototype and do not move…
