- A prototype is an early model of a product. A prototype is born from an idea for a product. It is typically built, tested, and redesigned as necessary until an acceptable final version is achieved. Once a prototype is considered final, the product can be developed from it. The word prototype is derived from the Latin words proto, which means "original," and typus, which means "form or model."
