Inside this book lies a multi-future time machine, and by the time you finish reading it, you'll be plucking inventions from many possible futures-but you won't need expert forecasting or complex data analysis skills to do it.

Future Scouting is a fun and practical step-by-step guide to designing fantastic and thought-provoking prototypes to inspire better tomorrows-an exciting practice known as speculative design, or design fiction. Using a back-casting design approach-and included downloadable worksheets-you'll learn how to research, ideate, sketch, and storify, to:
- Catch a signal of emerging change
- Design a future invention- Ideate a key scenario
- Extrude a hero and future world
- Compile your artefacts into a shareable prototype.

Drawing on the great work of future studies and speculative design practitioners past and present, Future Scouting combines product design, design thinking, life-centred design, and science fiction into one complete method to get you saving the world and back to the present well before the next pandemic.
