International audience; Several branches stemming from the field of human-centered design have tackled the discovery of user needs in early design phases. Within one of these approaches, prospective ergonomics, this study is calling for new methods in order to better elicit needs from the user. The study draws from the research on future-oriented cognition regarding how people imagine the future. We then report on a pilot study on the effect of two future projection tasks on the elaboration of user needs.
