Most software projects are built around the question "What are we going to do next?" But occasionally we're asked to think farther out. Projects focused either on the 5-10 year range or on cutting edge technologies are more about "Where are we headed?" "What's going to inspire people?" and even "What's cool?" These are different questions to ask, and answering them changes the usual process of interaction design.
This Cooper collection features news about future technologies, long-term trends likely to affect us, and techniques for working on this style of project. If the future is what we make of it, let's make it kick ass.
A Cooperista will follow up with you shortly.
