  • diy massage robot


  • NPC-equivalent in our real world
    • Free-roaming bots which cause small amounts of chaos - in far away/rural areas
    • robots which endear by being mostly right but sometimes mischievously wrong.

    • how to measure connections made? not about quantity though
    • more about the quality of one or two relationships

Not here not now Provocative futures, parallel realities, alternative worlds

Fantasy land, Japan inventing itself Make reality better, not by designing for existing realities but by looking at other futures and realities.

All designers at present look to the future, products are made for a few years ahead, we already anticipate how future is going to be like when designing products

These are potential futures There is scenario design and planning done in huge companies for many years now

What are preferable futures and realities? Sceptical futurist website

Forecasting Trends analysis Envisioning Scenario planning What if Counterfactual Thought experiments Reduction as absurdum World building Design fictions Artefacts from the future Design probes

Not here, not now. When u design for elsewhere what form do you use?

Invisible hertzian dimensions different responses. Some were worried some were excited to discover another dimension to their actions. Chair with many compasses - furniture and concepts. Then taking it to electronic products.

Mockups of complex technology United micro kingdoms The design museum Solutions magazine - reimagines countries. World building > world hinting

Start with values. Priorities dreams hopes fears anxieties Build alternative world Bring the artefacts back Reverse engineer them.... See it like in a historical museum and when u read then

Cars designed by designers

Cars and flight design spaces Selfndriving cars
