Ability Now Project

Prototype 1 Progress

  1. Scans or photos of sketched ideas.
  2. Devise and write down the at least 2 specific questions your prototype addresses. These will test different parts of your idea.
  3. Photos (at least 3) of fabrication progress
  4. What new skill did you learn while creating prototype 1?

Prototype 1 Test

  1. Photos and a video testing prototype 1 on your “client”.
  2. Where did your prototype break?
  3. Write about 2 answers you got from the test with the design changes that need to be made to prototype 1

Prototype 2 Progress

  1. Scans or photos of refined design
  2. Devise and write down the at least 2 specific questions your prototype addresses. These will test different parts of your idea.
