Addressing an engineering one-liner


Wheelchair accessible stairs

After creating mock-ups for a project deliverable due today, and starting to review the submitted deliverables of other groups, I noticed that the other groups' documents appeared to almost basically be hi-fi storyboards. While I don't think my group's approach was necessarily wrong, it was definitely different from the other two that have presently submitted their work.

I went in search of some education to check whether our approach was erroneous, but I came across this engineering one-liner on the Interaction Design Foundation website, which was quite amusing.

You can fix it now on the drafting board with an eraser or you can fix it later on the construction site with a sledge hammer.

Taking a sledge hammer to a desktop computer could be quite messy indeed, but point made!
