Future Scenarios Workshop – 2010

Products which have lasted for centuries, have subconsciously ingrained a common mental picture along with its function in our minds. For instance, when we need to get to a place, we drive the car, or when we need to look for someone, we instinctively reach for our cell phones.

We gradually cease to question or imagine possible alternatives because these products meet our needs to a very good extent. In this workshop, we aim not to reinvent these archetypes, but to relook at them as manifestations of technology and imagine our lives without being defined by these products. Using a set of design thinking tools, we will explore ways to ask thoughtful questions and challenge our imagination to design future scenarios.
