In this module you will use speculative design approaches (practices such as design fiction, critical fabulation and imaginary media) to explore and critique the implications and applications of ‘emerging technologies’. This term includes technologies that have been developing for some years but are now ‘emerging’ into mainstream usage, and technologies at the very cutting-edge of research and development – things that are becoming possible; or things that are not-yet possible (but soon will be – for example, science fiction).
