Rapid video prototyping for connected products

The Internet of Things means that the kinds of products designers will be working on is changing. Connected products will involve interactions spanning across multiple devices, places and interface types, including non-screen based interfaces like voice or physical controls. Video is a useful tool to rapidly prototype and iterate the experience of such products before spending time getting electronics or coding involved.

This workshop will introduce participants to video as a low-fidelity prototyping tool and guide them through creating a video prototype of their own using their smartphones.
