Prototyping phase II has started. A new prototype will be released soon.


Building a flexible framework for mid-fidelity prototyping to test promising UI designs with real users.



The latest prototype (v 0.15) can be started here (Java 6 required)

Note: This mid-fidelity prototype has no polished UI design! Also the content of the toolbar section is not final nor complete. We just want to test the menu and toolbar interaction with normal users. Therefore the prototype provides only limited functionality that allows us to run some tests in real live scenarios like creating a small presentation and doing some formatting.

Supported functionality in prototype

Tip: functional buttons in the toolbars show a green point in the lower left corner
