Innovative leap into the future: Emerging technology design by the science fiction prototypes

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference abstract in proceedingsScientific


    This presentation proposes science-fiction prototyping as an extension to the design methodologies that have future-oriented attitude and an aim to construct reflecting outcomes of research (Kymäläinen, 2015). The contribution focuses on considering how the method may be used explicitly as research-oriented design approach - with an objective to deliver science fiction stories that are based on extensive amount of research. The particularities of the demonstrated science fiction prototypes relate to the manner by how they engage user research findings of the emerging technology research profoundly to the prototyping processes, and how they underline the impact of the under-construction technologies in new, fictional experience environments.
