Prototypes' different purposes give them different requirements. Purposes for UI prototypes in pervasive computing systems development include communicating design ideas to diverse team members, supporting formative user tests, and providing summative evaluations of skilled user performance. CogTool is a system for rapidly building HTML storyboards as prototypes to fulfill all three purposes. It automatically produces quantitative predictions of skilled user performance time through demonstration, making human performance modeling more accessible to system designers.

This article is part of a special issue on rapid prototyping.
