rapid prototyping

so, if you are confused as to how to proceed based on our first discussion of your ideas, do the following...
you should create quick functional examples of your ideas in either Flash or HTML/CSS/Javascript. pick one idea to start and use basic boxes or images as a base to work with. try to make the interactions you are imagining really happen on a small scale. if you want the user to drag something across the screen, figure out how to make that happen. use the sites provided on the blog and internet searches to find similar solutions you can copy and alter to suit your needs.

remember, a rapid prototype is a quickly fabricated model that allows decreased development time and mistakes down the road by allowing corrections to be made earlier in the process. effective prototypes are fast, disposable, and focused.
