Virtual Prototype

A virtual prototype is a prototype design of a physical object, which is not just surface mapped, but exists in its entirety, complete with all moving parts, and behaves exactly as the physical counterpart should.

They are usually used to illustrate the characteristics of the product before actual construction begins. Often, several virtual prototypes are constructed in order to work out design considerations cheaply.

Occasionally, virtual prototypes are also used to enable potential investors, customers or reviewers to view the product and experiment with it without having to travel to a construction facility which may be halfway across the world.

Flexible, Implantable Biosensor for Healthcare
A prototype health sensor has been created that can be implanted inside the human body, bend to wrap around organs, and monitor in real-time any changes, illuminated by it's own light. The only problem is, it's still in the prototype stage.

Prototype Ionic Artificial Muscle Doubles as a Speaker
A prototype ionic muscle has been created by researchers at Harvard University. Not very strong, yet exceptionally pliant, its main claim to fame is that it can flex thousands of times per second, and being completely non-electronic, is capable at least in theory, of conversing with the neurons of the body in their native ionic tongue.

Revolutionizing Prosthetics 2009 Team Delivers First DARPA Limb Prototype
An international team led by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in the US, has developed a prototype of the first fully integrated prosthetic arm that can be controlled naturally, including the provision of sensory feedback and allows for eight degrees of freedom. This is an order of magnitude beyond previous efforts, including the haptic arm of Claudia Mitchell.
