Scientists have created a wormhole to alternate futures!

 

To help steer humanity toward a better tommorrow, you—a Future Design Scout—will be sent forward in time to design with future technologies. Your mission is to bring back an invention that keeps the world aligned with a common Key Value (kindness, empathy, privacy, etc).

A game of fast design, Future Scouting combines speculative design with designing for values. You’ll ideate, sketch, and review and sabotage other Scouts in your quest to design the invention that best enables the Key Value.

“…taking a speculative mission from Damien’s game is refreshing and thought provoking at the same time…  It is a different game of design when your target is nothing but a human value…” — Dilina J Nawarathne | Lecturer, University of Moratuwa
