FUTURE VISIONS - ENVISION THE ARTIFACTS OF TOMORROW

The future is here. Many of the technological limitations weighing down civilizations have been surpassed and new solutions, new technologies and new unknowns have become possible. But what are they and how do they transform the world?

Future Visions is a three-day futuristic concept design challenge for multidisciplinary teams, aimed to create concepts or designs that demonstrate what happens when certain technological barriers are broken. At the end of the 48-hour run you get to launch your vision of a future product or service based on the combined perspectives of your team, the tools offered by the challenge and the futuristic Robot Uprising atmosphere. The products will be evaluated both on the boldness of their concept and the precision of the surrounding narrative.

This challenge is first and foremost about worldbuilding. Technology has changed the world and it certainly will continue to do so, but how? Over the weekend you will be putting your imagination and knowledge to work in figuring out the whats and whys. You'll need all your wit and focus to jump into the future and build a solid, well-rounded vision.

Future Visions is aimed to illustrate the wild solutions of the world of tomorrow in meticulous detail. It is meant for all those interested in what happens after fiction is removed from science, whether your point of view is technology, science, design, society, or psychology. Join the ranks of the future geeks in the most extravagant setting of the year to envision the artifacts of the future!
