As scientific fields like genomics, synthetic biology, new materials or robotics progress at a fast pace, so do the new social narratives and scenarios that accompany them. This session gathers accomplished designers that are developing speculative narratives and social scenarios, to rehearse how different our everyday lives can be under the regimes of these emerging technologies. A catalogue of possible futures featuring in vitro food, new prosthetics and organisms designed on specs.
This talk is from the 2014 FutureEverything Conference. Tickets for the 2015 Conference are on sale now.
