What is lens rapid prototyping?

Posted by Luxexcel on Sep 21, 2016 12:30:00 PM

In this article we will explain why lens rapid prototyping is necessary for good design and what is the best way to do it, as nothing will bring you closer to the actual functionality of the final product than prototyping. Where mockups show the texture and feel of the design and wireframes can sketch out the blueprint for you, the prototype really brings the ‘user experience’ to life. The call-to-action created may look great on the screen, but you have no idea if it works for end users until you have the clickable prototype. And prototypes do not just help provide proof of concept, they also expose any usability flaws behind the mockups and wireframes.
