Discovery-Driven Prototyping

2009 - 2014

DDP(discovery-driven prototyping) is a user-centered prototyping approach originally proposed by Youn-kyung Lim and her co-workers. The core idea of DDP is to provide clear functionality without pre-defined purpose-of-use and use contexts so that users by themselves could discover unexpected value of the given functions in their own lives. This research program develops and examines DDP particularly in the domain of domestic ubiquitous computing and personal life care.
