Space Tourism: Hospitality or Adventure Industry?
BY MARYAM NABAVI
@ VOL 27
ON NOV 05, 2013
Maryam Nabavi, an Innovation Strategist at Idea Couture, talks about her strategy for the future of commerical space (i.e. Virgin Galactic) as a service industry. If you ever thought about living in space, then small bathrooms, carbon-dehydrated food, and uncomfortable sleeping arrangements are probably not what you had in mind. However, Nabavi redesigned the experience to have humans at the center of the problem so that it can be an enjoyable and memorable experience for anyone no matter their financial or physical situation.

@ VOL 118
ON OCT 29, 2014

BY NAOMI C. HANAKATA
@ VOL 127
ON JUL 29, 2015
"Truth is, sustainability can only ever be a wish, or a hypothesis. It can never be a definition of a product, or a design, or even a city and why? Because first to know whether or not something is sustainable it actually takes some time so we can observe whether or not that prediction holds true."
Architect, Planner, Researcher, Consultant … Idealist and Futurist, Naomi C. Hanakata from FUTURE CITIES LAB, ETH Zurich in Singapore explores the notions of sustainability and our shared future on earth, by first taking a step back from the now ever so ubiquitous and increasingly hollow word itself in an effort to persuade us to re-imagine the idea for a truly better future together. Hanakata touches on a multi dimensional sustainability index that would allow humanity to make decisions based on a more holistic and comprehensive idea of sustainability.
This presentation looks far forward and runs deep and positions us to better tackle the challenges of a shared future.
This was "Presentation of the Day" on Friday, August 27th, 2015.

@ VOL 18
ON FEB 23, 2018
Cecil Bothwell's talk questions the depiction of our planet as a spaceship, given that spaceships are designed to preserve life rather than end it. Actually 99% of all species that ever evolved are extinct and we humans are unlikely to be the exception.
Changing the rules of our reality with technology
BY JOHN KREISHER
@ VOL 18
ON FEB 23, 2018
John Kreisher is an engineer and futurist with a passion for disruptive technology as a vehicle for systemic change and expanding human awareness. The rise of clean energy, the Internet of Things, and a sharing economy give us the opportunity to move into a zero marginal cost society, but we need to collectively change our thoughts about what is real and possible. Capitalism has bred fear and scarcity consciousness, a sharing economy will breed connection and abundance consciousness!
The Hyperstitional Object
BY GRANT CIECIURA
@ VOL 11
ON SEP 06, 2018
'Hyperstition is a neologism that combines the words 'hyper' (over normal) and superstition (irrational belief) to describe the action of successful ideas in the arena of culture'.
Grant Cieciura calls for xenofuturists to unite and consider how technology, inhumanism and the agency of noise might re-open the possibilities of a divergent now.
Thus Spake Statis Beatnik
BY STEWART MORRIS
@ VOL 11
ON SEP 06, 2018
Aligned with the PechaKucha principle to 'think visual', digital creative Statis Beatnik believes that "words are very limited in being able to explain many of the most important human experiences. Try to explain the colour blue and you'll see an infinite amount of words it takes in comparison to showing just one image". In this vivid presentation, he shares his views on humanity and speculates on possible digital futures.

Tools for Design
“We used genetic algorithms to iterate through thousands of designs to find which one worked the best — it’s really an analogy to evolution.” Technology Futurist at Autodesk Jordan Brandt speaks on the tools designers use to get their ideas out into the world. In “Tools for Design” from a special Tokyo Designers Week 2014 edition of PKN Tokyo Vol. 118 Jordan speaks about the power of the cloud, iterative design processes, synthetic biology and building machines and experiences for tomorrow.
Autodesk at TDW 2014
Autodesk's partcipation at PechaKucha's biggest annual event in Tokyo, as part of Tokyo Designers Week, was twofold. As part of the lineup, we welcomed Jordan Brandt, Autodesk's Techology Futurist, as a presenter -- watch his presentation, "Tools for Design," online. The crowd of 700 was also treated to a rather nice parting gift, at least for 10 lucky winners, of iPad minis loaded with Autodesk's iOS apps. A terrific evening for all, in a true celebration of design and innovation -- watch all of the presentations in the Autodesk Channel, or from the official event page.
