"Are Designers Ruining the World?" [Creator's Block, Ep. 113]
Can you imagine your life without a car? For most of us, it seems impossible. Of course there are large cities with quality public transportation systems, but I'm sure the 85% of Americans that commute to work by car probably couldn't imagine it being different.
This wasn't always the case, though.
When the first "vehicle powered by a gas engine" was patented in 1886, there wasn't the vast majority of people who would claim the invention to be a necessity.
In fact, this often is the case with new technology. More times than not, new technology is met with fear.
Does our fear for new technology stunt its possibility?
It's unrealistic to just "let go" of your fear of the unknown, so how can we use fear to help drive better designs?
Join Marcella and me as we dive into the effect fear can have on technology designs and how we can channel that emotion for good.
