Five Speculative Designs for the Future

Designers and writers are having fun with visions for our lives as we career towards exponential technologies taking over. Here I present Five Speculative Designs for the Future that I think are worth having a look at across:

  • Floating cities
  • Autonomous car/drone hybrids
  • Glass user experiences
  • The future of airports at YVR
  • Remote control of humans
