This project analyzes the current state of low-fidelity augmented reality prototyping. It examines recent works in low-fidelity prototyping, as well as conducts a cognitive walkthrough for a higher-fidelity, yet no-coding-required augmented reality authoring tool. LensStudio is a popular digital augmented reality prototyping tool. This study compares the use of a custom prototype kit to another popular low-fidelity prototyping method, sketching, to see if one method produced more positive results for novice augmented reality users. These results are then compared with a group of more experienced users performing the same task. Results showed that though some materials in the proposed kit provided inspiration to novices, the materials also constrained them. This study proposes a workflow that involves novice AR users being presented with some overview information to properly ground themselves in what AR can do, and then to use their scenario to inform what materials should be part of their kit
