  Video prototyping  
    Executive summary  

Within experimental system development there is a long tradtion that visions for future technologies are concretized by means of prototypes, mock-ups, scenarios and video.

The virtual studio makes it possible to mix digital elements with persons and physical objects, thereby opening up new prospects of combining the above mentioned concretization possibilities in the form of video prototypes.

An internationally known example of a visionary video is Appel’s Knowledge Navigator from 1987 (see www.billzarchy.com/clips/clips_apple_nav.htm).

Through production and application of a number of video prototypes the purpose of the project is to investigate their application 1) in the communication of visions for future technologies and 2) in design workshops etc.

The concrete results are video prototypes within the following areas:

  1. Handheld display
  2. The future hospital ward
  3. The virtual architect
  4. The future drawing office
  5. The future school
  6. Living and interactive buildings
