Experiential futures are immersive products designed to evoke a visceral experience, helping to promote future thinking, generate ideas and challenge assumptions. The Experiential Futures team developed Ex-Futura, a digital experience made up of two immersive interactive stories showcasing very different scenarios. Participants can choose to play as either Gary or Jane, experiencing these characters’ lives in the digital environment of 2030. These scenarios were developed based on insights from several of Horizons’ foresight papers exploring the changing nature of education, employment and social interactions.

- The Future of Learning and Training: Environmental Scan
- Changing Nature of Work
Currently, Ex-Futura is only available on a portable Horizons device. Experience this “choose your own adventure” at the Ex-Futura booth at the Blueprint 2020 Innovation Fair on May 31, 2017.
