Extraordinary Machines
The first order of business for Future Forward design is opening the mind to fantastic and extraordinary possibilities. At the same time we have to abandon the conventions and practices we rely on today. It’s not just about inventing the thing. But first you need to invent the universe the thing lives in. Extraordinary Machines is a concept for reshaping our imaginations and instincts in extraordinary ways in order to make extraordinary things.
