Future, what?

We find ourselves in an exciting human mobility moment. From technical innovations like self-driving & electric cars, real-time mapping & sensing, to system logistics improvements, big data, crowdsourcing, Uber, car & bike sharing, the future is wide open and the possibilities rapidly evolving.

In this 5 day workshop we explored new roles, contexts and approaches for design in relation to the social, cultural and ethical implications of emerging and future mobility technologies. With a goal to showcase various mobility futures and inspire debate about their human consequences — both positive and negative. We designed for:

»[…] the complex, troubled people we are, rather than the easily satisfied consumers and users we are supposed to be.«
— Tony Dunne, Professor Design Interactions 2005 – 2015 at the Royal College of Arts London

The project outcomes were expressed through a variety of forms — including prototypes, mockups, simulations, video and photography, of apps, products, or services, and were presented to the fellow students & the moovel teams at the moovel HQ on the final day.

This project was documented in a way to be shared internally and externally with project stakeholders.

The process looked like this
