%X The existence of a processor with on\-board communication
   facilities, such as the transputer, makes it possible to
   prototype new hardware designs by emulating their functional
   units on networks of transputers. This gives better
   information about performance and appearance than simulation
   and can be considerably easier to build. It also permits
   software to be built and executed with performance that
   approximates the final system\-hence, software prototyping
   is also possible. We describe our experiences with two
   different systems: an object\-based vision system and an
   implementation of the functional language Lucid.
