Design for a Better Future

The art of turning science fiction into reality.

Design for a Better Future discusses how merging technology and design can solve all the world's problems, from healthcare to education. The book aims to answer: what if we could do more to hack, ease, expand and push the limits of homo sapiens and prepare ourselves for the next stage of our evolution, whether on Earth or off?

Synopsis

How do we manage our depleting natural resources as we continue to struggle with overpopulation? How do we build happier lives when we continue to fail to educate future generations? How do we stay both physically and socially connected to one another as we continue to isolate ourselves further with technology?

We all yearn for a world that works better, serves better, feels better. We want a world that works for us, not against us. However, few visionaries know how to execute ideas that radically enhance standards of living worldwide. By merging two worlds in creative ways - design and technology - designer and futurist Phnam Bagley exposes wonderful opportunities to build that better future for all.

Today, the process of merging technology and design can be lengthy and frustrating. Egos, top-heavy corporate bureaucracy, bad habits, lack of vision, and aversion to calculated risk-taking stand in the way of greatness.

By defining a future in contrast with today’s status quo, design and technology can find common grounds to support human flourishing and sustainable practices. This is also an occasion to think far and wide about opportunities and set up a solid foundation for the next generation of thought leaders and thought doers to build on. In choosing between soft evolution and radical revolution, history tells us that the greatest innovations happen by necessity, after surviving a period of desperation. The question is: do humans feel they are desperate enough to revolutionize the world they have built? If so, do they know where to start the transformation?

One example of subjects covered by the book is "The Future is Hackable". By merging performance, science and technology, we give humans the opportunity to hack their body’s capabilities and reach greater heights. Stimulating the motor cortex to reach our state of flow can help us learn movement faster. Shining near infrared light on specific areas of the brain has shown life-changing improvements to Alzheimer’s disease patients. Sleep quality can be hacked to ensure better energy and focus during the day. Children will have the opportunity to hack their school environment to suit their intellectual and emotional needs. Childhood Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be alleviated playing video games that feature closed feedback loops.

What if we could do more to hack, ease, expand and push the limits of homo sapiens and prepare ourselves for the next stage of our evolution, whether on Earth or off?

Other subjects include:

--The Future of Travel: how transportation technology, service robotics, low-touch economy, energy efficiency, pleasure, privacy and safety will evolve the way we move.
--The Future of Education: how aligning education with the future of work, supporting a child’s emotional wellbeing, welcoming neurodiversity, encouraging autonomy and acting sustainably will prepare our children for the world we are leaving them.
--The Future of Food: how technology can tackle the overpopulation problem, sustenance v. pleasure, cruelty v. responsibility, food design, hospitality and our relationship to the senses.
--The Future of Exploration: how humans are going to settle on the Moon and Mars, physical and mental health, the place of nature, living v. surviving.
--The Future of Sports: how pushing the limits of cognitive neuroscience, hyper-customizing protective equipment with generative design and 3D printing, and developing new biosensors will enhance performance and secure gold medals.

    This is a fantastic initiative to design for a better world, especially that after COVID, we need to rebuild everything around us: education system, social management, equality, the way we consume, etc.
