A prototype, or working model of your invention serves several vital purposes.
In the early stages of prototype development, you could very well find that unexpected design or utility flaws will surface, giving you the opportunity to revise your invention.
Once you have a working prototype, you'll use it to try and attract licensing prospects, investors, manufacturers or even enlist the help of invention service companies. Nothing will demonstrate your idea as well as a prototype, as it speaks louder and more completely than drawings and written descriptions.
