The interdisciplinary research project Blended Prototyping investigates new prototyping approaches for mobile applications. The research revolves around a rapid prototyping tool that creates mixed-fidelity prototypes from paper-based design. The approach follows the basic idea to allow the creation of mobile prototypes in early design stages as quickly and easily as possible, but at the same time as much complex as necessary, to keep it applicable in later development stages as well. Software engineering and Design Research methods are applied conjunctively to develop mobile user interfaces according to the user’s needs.
Blended Prototyping, a collaborative project of Benjamin Bähr (Telekom Innovation Laboratories) and Stephanie Neumann (Berlin University of the Arts) is a partial project of »Rethinking Prototyping«.
