A lot of things seen in science fiction have been realized since our childhood. How do we imagine the future in 20 years from now? What will we create to change people’s lives?
We will try to come up with answer to these questions and consider future lifestyle, devices, services, and systems. Each team will create prototypes using cardboard etc., and present their future world in form of a play in the final presentation.
