Uninvited Guests from Superflux on Vimeo.

Greetings!

Hope you are well! I often receive an array of resources and suggested readings from you that I love to share! And sometimes I come across a gem or two through your leads. I stumbled upon the video above when conducting research on speculative design. Speculative design poses questions such as “what if?” and encourages people to explore the future in new ways. Uninvited Guests provides a glimpse into what the future may look like as we impose, adopt, adapt, and reject “smart” devices designed to monitor and track our health. What are your thoughts after watching this?

More on speculative design? Read this: Speculative design: A design niche or a new tool for government innovation?

Here’s what you had to share:
