PSFK asked creative experts working at the forefront of cultural change what they look forward to as ‘one day’ being the reality that we live in. As part of a series on forecasts, we asked Bethany Koby And Daniel Hirschmann of Technology Will Save Us, ‘a haberdashery for technology and education dedicated to helping people to produce and not just consume technology’:
One Day people will have the skills and confidence to make their own gadgets and solve their own challenges through the use of technology. In the same way that people currently plant their own gardens or bake their own bread, the understanding of technology will become second nature to people. Right now, we think that people are essentially lacking in either the confidence or the skills to actually create something using technology. Most of us blindly use technology as is with very little understanding of how to fix it when it’s broken, let alone how to actually make something which could be useful for the rest of us.
We imagine a world where people can actually make and produce things, and design and create their own gadgets and their own solutions, because they have the skills and the resources to do so.
