This video shows Brian David Johnson on the 29th October 2009.,giving one of the earliest descriptions of Science-Fiction Prototyping. In this video Brian Johnson explains how Science-fiction Prototyping can be used to generate innovative ideas for new products, research agendas, businesses or even sociopolitical systems. While the Science -Fiction Prototyping methodology has has become much more sophisticated since this video was made (eg Intel's 21st Century Robot' maker project has since been implemented), it remains both a simple exposition of the basic ideas and an important historical record.
