Overview

This book is about science fiction prototypes (SF prototypes). SF prototypes are short stories, movies and comics that are created based on real science and technology. This is not a new idea, for over 100 years artists have been creating fiction based on fact. What makes SF prototypes different is that they use these fictional creations explicitly as a step or input in the development process. Whether you're a designer, engineer, scientist, artist, student or strategic planner, SF prototypes offer a way to imagine and envision the future in a whole new way. Science Fiction Prototyping is a practical guide to using fiction as a way to imagine our future in a whole new way. Filled with history, real world examples and conversations with experts like best-selling science fiction author Cory Doctorow, senior editor at Dark Horse Comics Chris Warner and Hollywood science expert Sidney Perkowitz, Science Fiction Prototyping will give you the tools you need to begin designing the future with science fiction.
