Prototyping

Prototyping is a critical phase in the product development and design process that involves creating a preliminary, tangible, and often simplified version of a product, system, or concept. 

The primary purpose of prototyping is to test and validate design ideas, functionality, and user experiences before investing significant resources into full-scale production or implementation. 

Prototyping in co-design serves as a bridge between ideas and tangible solutions, enabling collaboration, feedback collection, risk reduction, and user engagement.
