Using a speculative design foresight approach, this study explores the rapidly developing area of wearable, implantable, and ingestible technologies, exploring how they might influence us over the next several decades. The authors have combined traditional research methods (literature review and expert interviews), foresight methods (environmental scanning, trends analysis, and scenario creation), along with narrative and imagery conjecture to produce an evocative account of future possibilities in the realm of the tools we use outside and inside our bodies.
