We’ve sourced some of the most interesting and thought-provoking Prototype Quotes from Harry Seidler, Duncan Jones, Allison Schroeder, Jake Weber, Kevin McCloud. Each of the following quotes is overflowing with creativity, and knowledge.
From the early days of European migration to America, in the 17th Century, the prototype of buildings was based on English precedent, even if mostly translated into the locally available material in abundance: timber.
Jeron Lanier and ‘Lawnmower Man.’ That was VR. And there was the VFX1, that big giant VR prototype unit, and I was like, ‘I am going to save my money and get one of those.’ And then VR just sort of drifted away.
I interned at NASA for five years, and I grew up in Cape Canaveral, and my grandfather was an engineer on the Mercury capsule, and my grandmother was a software engineer. I literally grew up playing on the Mercury capsule prototypes.
My journey is about believing that people will actually stick around. It’s a hard thing to believe when you don’t have a prototype for it. I’ve had to develop that for myself.
Building a house from scratch in the middle of a field is a bit like building a prototype car. As with all prototypes, if you’re building a car you usually have the luxury of producing several prototypes before you arrive at the production line version – so the opportunity for changing things is quite rich.
What my voting record reflects is constantly looking to improve the amount of resources we having going into research, development, and prototypes we have going into renewable energy sources.
I love taking an idea… to a prototype and then to a product that millions of people use.
There is no modern prototype for a campus. You have to have a completely different model which has to do with transparency and exposing social connectivity and breaking down the Balkanization that happens departmentally.
The first album is a classic record and I think the prototype of a sound that no one else does.
Every building is a prototype. No two are alike.
There’s a tremendous number of the Daytona Prototypes.
When I was a kid in the mid-’60s, I was what’s known as a moddie boy, a prototype skinhead. You all had your hair like a crew cut, cropped, with suits or Levis with red suspenders, sometimes Doc Martens. It was a thriving soul music, Motown and ska scene; we used to dance to Prince Buster and the Skatalites.
When I started out rapping, I became very frightened by the idea that people were trying to pigeonhole me. That’s usually what happens to most female rappers. They fit in a box and there’s a prototype or person they’re compared to.
Unless you have fixed costs, you don’t need any capital to create a prototype. Ideally, your co-founders, with sweat equity, can create the product themselves.
Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers’s Centre Georges Pompidou of 1971-1977 – the true prototype of the modern museum as popular architectural spectacle – wound up costing so much more than planned that the French government solved the shortfall by cutting support for several regional museums.
It’s silly to have a prototype, because one inevitably falls for someone unexpected. My only criterion is she shouldn’t just look nice; she must have a personality, too.
I focus on consumer Internet. Sometimes it’s a working prototype; sometimes it’s an idea on a napkin. I don’t do a ton of deals a year, and I really like working with startups – it’s the only way I can invest. It fits my ADD brain.
The Romantic poets were the prototype ramblers, and I’ve often found myself following in their footsteps – although perhaps not all of their footsteps since a typical walk for Samuel T. Coleridge might last two days and cover 145km.
I’ve had the chance to work with Christopher Plummer, one of the great stage and film actors, a couple of times, including on ‘Prototype,’ the first TV movie I ever did. It was science fiction in the Ray Bradbury sense, written by the famous team who created Columbo, Levinson, and Link.
Blockchain is moving beyond cryptocurrency, and it’s worth paying attention – especially since successful prototypes show that blockchain, also known as distributed ledger technology, will be transformative.
Challenges keep evolving as you move into different stages. When you are at a prototype stage, it’s about getting that sustenance money. Then, talent becomes an issue; your early hires are difficult to get when you aren’t too big. Later, it’s about handling growth; then, you have competition.
I’m proud that Della was sort of a prototype for TV secretaries. There really was no such established character on TV when ‘Perry Mason’ came along.
Once you understand business models you can then start prototyping business models just like you prototype products.
I was interested in virtual reality for several years even before working at USC, it wasn’t an interest that started there at all. In fact, when I started working at USC, I already had prototypes of the Rift that were very similar to the final design.
The act of birth is the first experience of anxiety, and thus the source and prototype of the affect of anxiety.
Since Mary is the prototype of pure womanhood, the imitation of Mary must be the goal of girls’ education.
Remotely operated aircraft have been on the Canadian Forces’ wish list since the 1990s. Trials of a variety of drone prototypes began at the Canadian Forces Experimentation Centre in 2002.
But, having a perfume and license, in general, is a financial necessity. A designer must, to reap back the money spent on prototypes and all that sort of thing.
I want to encourage other people to try to discover who they are, not to try to fit into some superficial prototype of what they think a Christian should be, but to discover who they really are.
I’ve never been like Angelina Jolie, who at one time was spewing out this prototype Bad Girl stuff for people to consume. I’ve never boxed myself in that way. People can create boxes for me by all means, but it doesn’t mean I’m going to step inside them.

We got involved with the RepRap Project, a community focused on making 3-D printers that could make copies of themselves and help create a world without money. We started making prototypes.
Can we build a system which is able to survive on the ocean for years? That is the key question we are trying to answer here with the North Sea prototype.
God created a number of possibilities in case some of his prototypes failed – that is the meaning of evolution.
