Design Fiction: Does the search for plausibility lead to deception?
Design Fiction: Does the search for
plausibility lead to deception?
Paul Coulton, Joe Lindley, Haider Ali Akmal
“Design ﬁction is
(1) something that creates a ﬁctional world, and
(2) has something being prototyped within that ﬁctional world,
(3) it does so in order to create a discursive space.”
Where ‘something’ can be ‘almost anything’

Game of Drones
In response to the recent European Directive the UK
government sanctioned the use of drones by
commercial providers subject to pilots holding an
approved Drone Pilot Proficiency Certificate (DPPC). As
the government anticipated the main use has been in
providing services to local authorities that aid in the
enforcement of local by-laws. Whilst many commercial
providers have followed the traditional path of
employing dedicated enforcement officers to pilot the
drones, in this paper we present on-going research that
‘gamifies’ the enforcment activities to allow members
of the local community to act as enforcement officers.
In particular we have worked with retired members of
the police and armed services as drone pilots in relation
to the enforcement of by-laws relating to parking
offences and dog fouling in a small UK city. The initial
results indicate that not only does this age group find
the game-like activity enjoyable they feel that they are
providing an important service to their community.

Ambiguous or Concealed Design Fiction
A reporter had just called, but he lost
interest after learning the implant was
just an idea meant to stimulate
conversation, not an actual invention.
The two designers powwowed. Maybe,
they thought, the trick is to make it
seem a little more real.
