Emerging tools are allowing makers to efficiently test and refine their designs over multiple iterations to ensure that the final product effectively meets the needs of its end users
Archimedes, the Greek mathematician credited with calculating pi, is also known for making “Eureka!” the go-to exclamation for anyone who has arrived at a moment of great insight or inspiration. Makers experience this moment over and over, and the corresponding rush of dopamine can make the creative experience highly addictive.
But when the eureka moment is followed by long hours of slogging away with little progress towards bringing a great idea to life, the experience loses some of its joy. To keep makers moving forward, a raft of new technologies are appearing to enable quick, affordable iterations on the original idea. This trend promises Multi-Approach Prototyping for the creative community.
