Scientists have created a wormhole to alternate futures!

To help steer humanity toward a better tomorrow, you—a Future Design Scout—will be sent forward in time to design with future technologies. Your mission is to bring back an invention that keeps the world aligned with a common Key Value (kindness, empathy, privacy, etc).
