Proto- & Provotypes tool – Mindlab Denmark

Test ideas quickly. A prototype is a visualization of an idea, for example, an outline of a public letter. The key is to get fast inputs to an unfinished idea from end-users, in order to further develop the idea. Provotypes, on the other hand, are sketches of solution types that are unrealistic, but may provoke a discussion with users: What would they definitely not want? Mindlab is an inter-ministry government innovation lab that invents, develops and experiments with new ways to find and define problems as well as new approaches to solving them in a relevant and effective manner.
