Future artifacts, designs

Design fictions: Bruce Sterling explains this notions and its utility for futuring.

Definition: “the deliberate use of diegetic prototypes to suspend disbelief about change.”

One example:

Corning – A Day Made of Glass from WESTERNIZED Productions on Vimeo.

One benefit, perhaps cyncially:

it suits the tenor of our own period. What kind of business model would that work in? That’s the question people of our time can engage in.

Perhaps we can aggregate and use a host of education design fictions.
