If you are planning something to build, you must have ideas in your head, and you’re ready to start assembling the team. Whatever the item a company intends to launch, creating a prototype is a very crucial task. A prototype is an early sample, model, or release of a product built to test a concept or process. It is a term used in a variety of contexts, including semantics, design, electronics, and software programming. A prototype is generally used to evaluate a new design to enhance precision by system analysts and users. Who can build a prototype? Any cognizant faculty from respected fields can help to build a prototype. If the idea is yours, you can create a prototype too.


• Nowadays, ideas are cheaply shared around the world. We are the one who shares the idea very quickly. So maybe the idea is cheap. But proving it worthy by building a prototype is worthy. We can connect to potential customers and investors. The prototype enables innovators to reduce the risk and cost associated with developing these ideas. First of all, you need to focus on proving the value of your idea.

• It can serve as documentation for your project.

• It’s a useful reference for creators.

• You can show and test your concept on the targeted audains.

• It will save you time and money.


By making a prototype before building a product, it is possible to take a glimpse at the production process and see if any steps can be changed, combined, or even removed. So it will be better for developers/creators to avoid difficulties while making a product. Keep in mind, do not fall in love with the process to create a prototype. It is just to imagine a product. Our goal is to develop the product.

Providing prototype to investors helps their invest their money in a project. Moreover, customers can give valuable feedback so that we can manipulate our idea or building process. In some cases, we can add and edit functionalities according to the user's needs.


As it is easier to find any error with the working model, it is far easier to sell a product to targeted customers when we have a prototype in the market. Without a prototype, It can be difficult to get a potential client to commit to the purchase of a concept. With the prototype, it is easy to understand the concept of the project. Ultimately it affects our selling. We can easily sign a purchase order.


In the world of the internet, Ideas are easy to steal. Even, a team member can also share ideas in the market. If your product is unique enough, patents need to be registered. By registering the patent, no other person or organization can manufacture the same product. By having a working prototype, it is much easier to sit down with a patent attorney and see what design aspects may be patentable.


1. Low fidelity prototypes: This is the quickest way to design a prototype. It may lead to surprising results. It further divides into two parts Wireframes and Paper prototypes & sketches

2. High fidelity prototypes: If you want to create a real life product, this is the best approch. Definetly it is more complex but results are accurate too.

3. Unconventional prototypes
