About this talk

So you have a brilliant idea for a product. Great! Now, you have to prove that it works!

This presentation, designed with hardware engineers in mind, takes you through the basics of prototyping, providing you with the actionable tactics and information that you need to get that idea out of your head and into customers’ hands.

Many people don’t realize just how much thought and iteration goes into prototyping, be it sketching, basic model making, fabrication, or 3D printing and other advanced methods of prototyping.

This presentation will help you to understand how and why to choose a certain type of prototype as well as the process involved in building that prototype. Really diving into the philosophy of prototyping (i.e. why we do it and who we do it for).

Expect to also learn some key features of prototyping such as the differences between ‘looks-like’ and ‘works-like’ prototypes, a ‘risk-based’ approach to prototyping, as well as how to prototype based on audience or customer needs.
