I am typing this while sitting in a rapid prototyping session by the incredible Tom Chi, former Head of Experience at Google X and inventor of Google Glass (amongst many other things).
Tom is taking SingularityU’s Global Solutions Program participants through a fast-paced exercise which, among many other things, teaches them to get out of their heads and their hands dirty. You can speculate, think through and reason about an idea as long as you want — nothing beats getting your idea into a prototype and the prototype into the hands of your customers. As Helmuth von Moltke the Elder famously said: “No battle plan ever survives contact with the enemy.”
Find the quickest, cheapest way to turn what is in your head into a prototype and get it out there!
