IDEO developed Noam to support the design of increasingly complex hardware + software prototypes. It is ideal for creating quick, iterative, flexible digital-physical experiences that require communication between disparate platforms. While the need for robust product development continues, we have found Noam can dramatically increase the speed and likelihood of arriving at the right idea. Read more.
