Rapid prototyping is a design and development technique that involves creating quick, low-fidelity versions of a product or feature in order to test and iterate on ideas quickly. Rapid prototypes can be physical or digital, and can range from simple paper sketches to interactive wireframes or functional prototypes. The goal of rapid prototyping is to quickly create a representation of a product or feature that can be tested and evaluated by users, stakeholders, and the design team, and used as a basis for further development.
