Future Shock is Here: A Future Now Special Edition The far-reaching consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic are a stark reminder that global shocks will always be part of life. While shocks, by definition, are unpredictable, it doesn’t mean you can’t prepare for them. In fact, the purpose of futures thinking (like the kind we do at IFTF) is to develop practical tools, skills, and other capacities to anticipate, survive, and even benefit from disruptions of all kinds. The planetary shock of COVID-19 is a call-to-action for futures thinkers around the globe to get serious about the need to develop multifarious scenarios and flexible contingency plans. In this special edition of IFTF's Future Now, we’re going to look at the coronavirus from a futurist’s perspective by framing three key big questions and by sharing a curated set of links to videos, essays, and other resources from IFTF experts to help you start to formulate answers that make sense for you, your organization, and your community now.
Animate Anything With Cloud Stop Motion Cloud Stop Motion by ZU3D is a new stop motion animation tool that I recently learned about from Danny Nicholson's The Whiteboard Blog. Cloud Stop Motion is a browser-based tool for creating short stop motion videos. I gave it a try this afternoon and found it quite easy to use. You can try Cloud Stop Motion without creating an account. That said, I'd recommend creating a free account because without one your video has to be so short that you really can't get a sense for how all of the tools work. Once you've created your Cloud Stop Motion account you should enable your webcam so that you can use it to capture pictures of objects that you place in front of it.
