chauffeured prototype

a prototype, typically done as a paper-and-pencil version of the interface, that the designer walks through with the user and manually demonstrates how the interface would respond to user actions. For example, the user might say “I’d click this button”, and the designer would pull out a dialog box on paper that would appear. The advantage of a chauffeured prototype is that not all pieces need to be assembled but interactivity can still be tested; the designer can spontaneously create any missing pieces based on what the user needs in any given scenario.
