Future Visualization with Children

Published on

As part of Institute of Customer Experience, we are constantly on the look out for opportunities that give us an insight into the future of things. We wanted to explore the concept of “beginner’s mind” which is said to be an attitude of openness, eagerness and lack of preconceptions and realized that it was the mind of a child that we wanted a peek into.

We ideated and devised a unique way of getting children to give us their insights about what they think will happen in the future. The result was a board game called “The Trip to the Future” which we used to conduct “playshops”. This method got us very exciting responses. We would love to take you through the journey.

Transcript of "Future Visualization with Children"

  1. 1. Future Visualization with Children an ICE Initiative December 2013
  2. 2. Children see magic because they look for it. - Christopher Moore
  3. 3. The Hypothesis Children have great ability to visualize the future because of their relatively unbiased and un-coloured minds, and if stimulated sufficiently they can give us highly creative and imaginative ideas of possible future scenarios.
  4. 4. What We Did As part of ICE, we are constantly on the look out for opportunities that give us an insight into the future of things. We wanted to explore the concept of “beginner’s mind” which is said to be an attitude of openness, eagerness and lack of preconceptions and realized that it was the mind of a child that we wanted a peek into.
  5. 5. What We Did We ideated and devised a unique way of getting children to give us their insights about what they think will happen in the future. The result was a board game called “The Trip to the Future” which we used to conduct “playshops”. This method got us very exciting responses. We would love to take you through the journey.
  6. 6. Evolution of the Game From conversations to engagement…
  7. 7. Areas of Interest As a team, we wanted to explore domains such as: • Cities and urban life • Education • Entertainment • Communication • Work and workplace • Sustainability
  8. 8. The Participants The idea was to get children from different backgrounds and levels of exposure and yet try not to overwhelm the scope of the exercise. We finally went with children aged between 8 and 12 and a mix of girls and boys. We conducted playshops in 3 cities, Mumbai, Pune and Pondicherry and had children from both high and low income families.
  9. 9. Conceptualizing the “Playshop” The sessions had to be stimulating enough for children to stay engaged without getting distracted. Based on research about effective workshops with children and ideating within the team, we arrived at some guidelines and ideas for the sessions: • Present the stimuli in the form of problems of the future or incomplete scenarios, which then get completed by the children • Allow children to express themselves freely using different media like writing, drawing, speaking or play-acting • Make the sessions more play than work.
  10. 10. The Board Game The team developed a board game, which would engage the children without intimidating them. While playing the game, we hypothesized, the children would suggest solutions and ideas for various scenarios. The game is called “Trip to the Future” and presents an imaginary and futuristic setup that takes the children on a long trip to space. On this journey, they encounter some imaginary problems that they need to solve. These ‘problems’ represented our areas of interest that we wanted to explore with the children.
  11. 11. The Board Game The game has adventure, aliens, spacecrafts and much thrill. The scenarios help us get responses for these key questions among others: • How will food be produced in the future? • What will future houses look like? • How will people entertain themselves? • Who will they look for as companions? • How will they be educated?
  12. 12. The Board Game: Early Explorations Start Yippee! You can win! How will you celebrate? Tell and go.. Crash!! Go back 1 step! Friends can’t come for play. How would you play with them? You got Rs. 10000 What would you like to buy for your future? Playground closed for repair. Go back 4 steps! You get to build your future school. List 5 things in your school. You can make your own phone!! What would you like in it? Parents not at home. What will you do for food? Friends calling for play. What would you like to play? List top 3 games! You got Rs.1, 000,000,000. Build your home. What will your home have? You lose 2 friends. Go back 2 steps!
  13. 13. The Final Version
  14. 14. Facilitating Playshops Facilitating the Playshop And getting the best responses…
  15. 15. Optimal group size We organized playshops with no more than 20 children per group. We then divided the group into two or three sub-groups and facilitated games with each sub-group.
  16. 16. Encourage & Include In most of the sessions, we came across children with different dispositions. Some were more open and confident, others a bit shy. We made sure that we got all of them to participate and gave them the freedom to express themselves in whatever way they were most comfortable, either verbally or by writing or drawing. In some cases, the facilitators had to use appropriate probes to get them thinking about the future.
  17. 17. Technology – The Great Equalizer!  The ever growing popularity of mobile phones has meant that children from lower income families are now very familiar with various games they play on the mobile.  Similarly, cable television has introduced lower income families to a range of foreign films and TV shows, which are broadcast in regional languages.  Children from low income families were inspired by TV shows and movies like Ben10,Jungle Book, Doraemon, Ninja Hattori, Mr. Bean, Shinchan, Chhota Bheem, Harry Potter and latest Indian films.  Children from high income families were inspired by Iron man, Spider man, Doraemon, Phineas and Ferb, Hunger Games, Avengers, Tom & Jerry, Ice Age, Adventures of Tintin, Life of pi, Monster High and lots of books.
  18. 18. The Responses A magical future; the themes that emerged…
  19. 19. Key Themes The responses revealed several themes, the most important of which are: • Small and Powerful • Wearable Technology • 3D Printing • Technology will be More Human • In low income groups: • Safety and Security • Aspiration • In High income groups: • Sustainability • All Sci-fi What do the Futurists say? Interestingly, we realized that futurists have also spoken about some of these themes and we have presented their views as we explore these themes further.
  20. 20. Low income group When aliens come in my house, an electric wall comes up around the house It’s a flying home. When aliens come, a big and strong laser protects us. Safety and Security • Responses from children from low income families reflected their need to stay secure with their friends and family. • Most of their responses for the houses they would build in space included a key safety aspect. “The reason I like talking about fear is that it's a human experience. We know that security is important, and it's only going to get more important. So as we look 10 to 15 years out, what I want to do is to think: What do we really need to be afraid of?” - Brian David Johnson, Intel Corp.'s first futurist Source: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=intel-futurist-brian-david-johnson-data-secret-life
  21. 21. Aspiration Low income group A lot of the responses from children from low income families pointed to aspirations in terms of material belongings. “In his role as optimist, Arnold noted that in fact we have a growing global middle class, with projections of 3.6 billion middle-class people by 2030. The term middle class has connotations beyond economic, referring as well to a shared value system and aspirations..” – Is the Future Half Empty or Half Full? -Arnold Brown (from Weiner, Edrich, Brown, Inc., a top-tier futuring consultancy) Source: http://www.wfs.org/book/export/html/765 Flat TV Utensils Fridge Sofa Kitchen Books Clothes Car Foldable Chair Bike Bag Dining Table Tree
  22. 22. Sustainability High income group Many children from high income families gave responses that showed their concerns about the environment and their willingness to provide sustainable solutions. This can be attributed to greater exposure to environmental issues. “…it also became clear that concern about the environment was not limited to consumers from developed economies – the 2010 World Economic Forum report suggested that such concern was as strong in the developing world, “and in some areas stronger as they [people in the developing world] are often more directly affected [by], for example, water pollution.” – Chris Laszlo and Nadya Zhexembayeva. Source: http://www.challengefuture.org/futurebook/august-2010/futuresustainability-big-three-trends Solar Panel Tree house Water Tube Turbine for water and wind Invisible window, people living inside can see people outside but not viceversa
  23. 23. High income group Build an invisible and a flying house Flying car Helipad (for flying cars) Air and solar panel House with oxygen, technology and transport Mansion with an invisible door Voice Recognition Security • It can make all kinds of food • It extracts energy from the nearby stars • We use Morse code to control it. Weapons All Sci – Fi Underground Cover Children from high income families were more exposed to science fiction movies and literature and some of their ideas showcased that. Airtight Dome Multi-laser Blaster Handprint Security Blast Resistant Door Assistance Gun “The biggest growth in science fiction publishing these days, hands down, is happening in the young adult market, and that's great news. While the "real" science fiction publishers are chasing a shrinking - and graying - readership, tweens and teens are discovering SF for themselves, thanks to books from a diverse range of writers. Best of all, YA science fiction isn't aimed at a subculture, but at everybody of a particular age.” – Charlie Jane Anders, io9. Source: http://io9.com/5036820/youngadult-books-will-save-science-fiction
  24. 24. There would be a chip in our head, which would bring a book in front of our eyes. It would be updated with new books, videos, etc. Small & Powerful Many ideas were based on compact objects, which had very powerful capabilities. I will get two capsules and put water on them, which will generate pizza. “The Miniaturization trend has become deeply embedded into modern society because manufacturers, distributors and consumers all benefit from the results.” -Scott Morgan. Source: http://www.scott-morgan.com/blog/thereality-of-our-global-future/topicsummaries/miniaturization/ I’d spray a special liquid on the aliens, which will help them learn and speak English.
  25. 25. We have cameras in our eyes, we can just wink and pizzas can come out. Lenses for the eye Lenses send the image you see to anyone you want. It’s voice controlled. The lenses send the info to aliens from another planet with the help of a translator. Aliens send the info back to the lenses with the help of a translator. The lenses send the signals to the brain. Wearable Technology Some of the ideas were around technology that could be worn or be extensions of the body. “The concept of holding a computing device in your hands to use it will be replaced by “wearable technology,” a technological genre that is just now starting to ramp up to wide consumer use.” – Steve Outing, Media Futurist Source: http://mediadisruptus.com/2013/08/20/futurist-interview-gray-scott/#sthash.kXX89r4f.dpuf
  26. 26. Food Generator Model 1 Sausages is typed. Food processor Touch screen pad for selecting food Food giver Food Generator Model 2 Sausages appear. Food processor Conveyor belt 3D-Printing Some of the ideas directly pointed to the existing and rapidly evolving cutting edge technology like 3D printing. “3D printing will be even more common than it is today, with public 3D printing stations for people to print out clothes, toys, and anything else.” – Ray Kurzweil. Source: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/11/20/ridiculously-accurate-futuristshares-his-bold-prediction-on-the-glenn-beck-program/
  27. 27. Would build a house, which is voice controlled. You can just call out and the particular food would come to you. It would be super-strong and unbreakable. It would have a special sensor, which will close the door by itself. It would capture everything on the planet through hidden cameras. It’s roof would have solar panels to store energy. The camera would show all the details on my television. Technology will be More Human Many children came up with solutions that used technology with intelligent human-like features. “Roboticist Hans Moravec believes that by mid-2020s, we will create humanoid robots that can express reasoning, emotion, and are eager to perform household tasks. These machines will find and fetch things, express feelings of compassion and love, and become a strong security force, protecting us from Internet cyber attacks; and shielding our homes from weather damage, accidental fires, and dangerous intruders.” - Dick Pelletier. Source: http://www.positivefuturist.com/archive/450.html
  28. 28. The Responses A showcase of the most interesting responses from the children- ideas that are indicative of significant future trends.
  29. 29. You are setting out from Earth on a super-exciting space adventure in a very cool, futuristic spacecraft called SuperNova. What are the 5 most important things you will take along with you? • Food: When you think of something you want to eat, it is transported to your stomach so you don’t have to stop your activities for food. • Robots: If you don’t want to do something or can’t do it, the robot will do it. • Gadgets: So that if any problem is encountered, the gadget can solve it. Can also be used for wireless communication through the robot. • Clothes: Unlike the present spacesuits, which are bulky, the space clothes will be close to what we wear normally. • Fuel: If the spacecraft runs out of fuel; Fuel can be anything, e.g. mud, waste material, etc. Screen Has an interface of the whole spacecraft Controls Drop waste/ mud here Waste is turned to fuel here Navigation Connected to robot so if there’s a problem, the gadget can convey it to the robot. Chemicals to turn waste to fuel Chemical to enhance fuel Fuel sent to engine Apart from basic necessities like food ,clothes and fuel, it was interesting that children unanimously wanted robots and gadgets as essential things to carry along; robots that could do everything for them if required. Some children also thought of producing extra fuel using in-house waste material.
  30. 30. You are setting out from Earth on a super-exciting space adventure in a very cool, futuristic spacecraft called SuperNova. What are the 5 most important things you will take along with you? Automatic TV; we can just order it to change channels. Sofa with wheels, it comes to us when we ask it to. An automatic kitchen, which prepares anything we want it to prepare; If I want a chocolate cake, we can just ask the kitchen and it will bake the cake for me An automatic fridge, which opens on our command. More automatic furniture. Automatic! Automatic TV, sofa, kitchen, fridge and furniture – children expect these objects to function without much physical effort.
  31. 31. The local inhabitants of the Rivendell Planet are curious about the pizza you are munching as you step out of the spacecraft. They would like to taste it. How will you offer your favorite food to everyone? Food ordering goes to the next level – children presented various ideas on how food could be ordered in the future. All the ideas had one thing in common – they wanted instant gratification. The interfaces to order food included tablets, simple phones or cameras inside eyes controlled by eye gestures like winking. We have cameras in our eyes, we can just wink and pizzas can come out. “Sausages” is typed I have a tablet, where I can draw/ write that I want pizza, and the pizza will arrive on the tablet. Sausages appear
  32. 32. The local inhabitants of the Rivendell Planet are curious about the pizza you are munching as you step out of the spacecraft. They would like to taste it. How will you offer your favorite food to everyone? Get the “Pipop” gadget from Doraemon; it lets you enter a slice of pizza, enter the quantity and the gadget produces that many pizzas. The influence of TV shows like Doraemon is clearly the inspiration for this idea. This child wanted a gadget that replicates food in as much quantity as needed, based on a small food sample.
  33. 33. The local inhabitants of the Rivendell Planet are curious about the pizza you are munching as you step out of the spacecraft. They would like to taste it. How will you offer your favorite food to everyone? Pizza plant: There’s a pizza producing plant. It will be able to count the inhabitants and make that many pizzas. It will be able to replicate the taste and toppings of my pizza. A pizza plant that produces food for the whole community.
  34. 34. The local inhabitants of the Rivendell Planet are curious about the pizza you are munching as you step out of the spacecraft. They would like to taste it. How will you offer your favorite food to everyone? I’d use a food machine to produce food out of the things around, which we don’t need I’d build a house which would be invisible so that we’re safe from dangerous aliens. In this house, there will be a big inventing and fixing room. There will also be a chair, which would let us watch TV, move here and there and do other things. A food machine with the capability to produce food using waste material.
  35. 35. The local inhabitants of the Rivendell Planet are curious about the pizza you are munching as you step out of the spacecraft. They would like to taste it. How will you offer your favorite food to everyone? Food Generator Model 1 Food processor Touch screen pad for drawing/ typing the dish you want Food giver Menu to select a dish you want Food processor Food Generator Model 2 Conveyor belt Put food selection tablet in the gravity cup, food is made in the tunnel and comes out on the conveyor belt/tray.
  36. 36. The local inhabitants of the Rivendell Planet are curious about the pizza you are munching as you step out of the spacecraft. They would like to taste it. How will you offer your favorite food to everyone? A gigantic multiplier ray that can create multiple copies of any food that it is pointed to.
  37. 37. The local inhabitants of the Rivendell Planet are curious about the pizza you are munching as you step out of the spacecraft. They would like to taste it. How will you offer your favorite food to everyone? One of the respondents, Nikolas, was full of ideas on how food could be transported in the future. The simplest solution according to him would be to have machines that could replicate food. Put food in one machine, send it across to the other place and take as many copies as required. Alternately, he also thought of creating food on his smart device and then making the food available for all. Finally, he also had the idea of food pills – pills that once put in water expand to become full-sized food items.
  38. 38. Your next stop is on planet Football. There is only one living inhabitant there. He requests you to fill up his planet with creatures who will be his neighbors and friends. What kind of creatures will you get to reside on that planet? The talking tree The cat who can talk, walk, sing An insect butterfly Robot human being A fish that can walk Make friends with nature, since it will be easy to converse with all possible living beings in the future.
  39. 39. You are eager to explore more in space. But there seems to be no new planet immediately in sight… and you are getting bored. What will you do to kill time? Big screen Can turn into small screen Connected on hand - Turns in into big screen - Sends info live Connected at home Video live screen Connected to satellite Run a live content about the space for the people on earth, and 20 lucky winners will get to travel to space. Sharing and updating status messages was top of mind for one child. He wanted to run live content updates for people on earth. There would also be contests based on the live streaming and the winners of the contests would get a chance to join him in space.
  40. 40. You are eager to explore more in space. But there seems to be no new planet immediately in sight… and you are getting bored. What will you do to kill time? Draw your friend / person you want on a tablet (app) and he/she will come alive. You can create your own characters too!
  41. 41. You are eager to explore more in space. But there seems to be no new planet immediately in sight… and you are getting bored. What will you do to kill time? I would communicate with the help of my space telephone with creatures of other planets. I would ask them about their living, etc. and we would communicate with my translation tool. I would also communicate with people back on earth and tell them about my condition. I would ask them to send me some entertainment like video games, and books. The books will be e-books, powered by atmospheric resources. Interaction with inhabitants of earth and outer space through special communication devices like “space telephone”. Camera (The stamp is a camera) The picture is here on the first page of the book Special self populating E-books, which let you click pictures and then populate the pages with those pictures, descriptions and details.
  42. 42. You are eager to explore more in space. But there seems to be no new planet immediately in sight… and you are getting bored. What will you do to kill time? Video Glasses Transmitters Internet • These video glasses have password of winks and blinks in the correct order. • They have books, games, videos and internet connection. • They can also control the space ship. Glasses that have a lot of capabilities. They can connect to the internet, show visual content like videos, games and books and can even act as a means to control the spaceship. The glasses are controlled using eye gestures.
  43. 43. On planet Orion, you must build a new spacecraft so you can continue your journey. Where will you stay till you ready your spacecraft? What kind of house will you build on Orion for yourself? Alien will bounce back and cannot attack the bubble house. A food court Underground houses Underground people Underground My house A mall Play Station My storehouse Market Art store It will be a tiny bubble.

  47. 47. On planet Orion, you must build a new spacecraft so you can continue your journey. Where will you stay till you ready your spacecraft? What kind of house will you build on Orion for yourself? I would build a house with wings, which will not have a roof so you can see the amazing celestial objects in the atmosphere of Orion. I could sit on one of the wings and just move around the planet. I would make a sculpture to decorate my house, which can also change into things you could interact with. The open roof to see the celestial objects in the atmosphere of the Orion The wings to fly around the planet A sculpture made of safe asteroids A roofless flying house which allows you to see celestial objects in the atmosphere.
  48. 48. On planet Orion, you must build a new spacecraft so you can continue your journey. Where will you stay till you ready your spacecraft?

The idea was firmly rooted in the need for security. According to Ganesh, the houses of the future would be varied in size and complexity, but they all would need steps to get into them. The residents would be safer if they stayed at a level higher than the ground.

  58. 58. Conclusion The board game “Trip to the Future” turned out to be an engaging way for children to give us interesting and unique responses. The success of playshops across locations reinforces the effectiveness of the research methodology. It is interesting to note that the key findings were in line with many a futurist’s visions. The team also observed how technology is emerging as a way of making society more equal with the ubiquity of mobile phones and cable television. We would like to collaborate and work with researchers across the world and extend the study to other countries. It will be exciting to be able to report what children from various parts of the world have to say about the future.
