Video & Design Thinking

Designer and futurist Julian Bleecker and his team at the Near Future Laboratory produced an insightful series of videos for Emerge 2014, an annual festival at Arizona state described as a "carnival of the future". 

What I like about this concept is that we often tend to think about grand tech with lots of wow factor when thinking about the future. Instead Bleecker offer's a banal and quotidian perspective on how tech will further blend innocuously into the background of everyday life, where not much attention is paid. 

For a crash course in design thinking check out this video from the Stanford D School.
