Jumping into unique ways of prototyping, we look at some examples that uncover relationships between the generality of products, users and recently emerged technologies that we might have not known before. We question the validity of low fidelity prototyping and the validity of persona-based users, and we even take a critical look at the notion of empathy. Afterward, in a collaborative safe space, we create together, present, reflect and question the findings we come across, good, bad or just inspirational and eye-opening.
