Prototyping phase II has ended.


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



Screencast Live Prototype
The video testdrive on YouTube gives you a first impression what the prototype is about. The latest prototype (v 0.18) runs on "live" your computer (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 interaction of the a possible UI 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.

Our page Frequently Asked Questions provides more information on what is prototyping.
