Keywords Branching path; Trajectory; Innovation pathways; Paradigm; Industry scenario; Meso-level Highlights * New technology fields can be represented as paths that build momentum, fork and evolve. * Forecasting Innovation Pathways (FIP) require a further developed theory of path emergence and evolution. * 3D printing can be represented by a dominant design: a tri-partite configuration that is filled in a variety of ways. * 3D printing is a field which evolved first around prototyping applications and has branched out to new applications. * The interplay of foreseen applications and the filling of the tri-partite schema motivate branching from rapid prototyping. Abstract In recent years, the Forecasting Innovation Pathway approach (FIP) has shown to be a promising set of tools to capture potential developments in emerging fields through capturing indications of endogenous futures. However, the FIP approach is reliant on a clear demarcated area to study, a challenge for emerging technology fields where uncertainty and rhetoric abound. This paper presents an addition to the FIP toolbox that helps characterise and demarcate boundaries of emerging fields to allow for deeper analysis through other FIP methods. We illustrate this approach through an exercise for 3D printing technology (also known as Additive Manufacturing). We show that 3D printing can be represented by a dominant design: a tri-partite configuration of printer, material and digital design software. In the past decade we have seen significant branching from applications in rapid-prototyping to medical, fashion, aeronautics and supply chain management with a variety of elements coming together in tri-partite configurations. The paper adds to the current FTA literature an approach building on evolutionary theories of technical change to help with such situations -- emerging, evolving and branching 'innovation pathways'. Moreover, we developed a methodology to construct these innovation paths.

Byline: Natalia Reich-Stiebert [email@example.com] (a,*), Friederike Eyssel (a), Charlotte Hohnemann (b) Keywords Educational robots; Attitudes toward robots; Attitude change; Robot prototyping; User involvement Highlights * Attitude change by user participation in a robot prototyping process is proposed. * Positive attitudes toward robots increased when participating in the design task. * Robot anxiety decreased when participating in the design process. * People's behavioral intentions, however, were not significantly affected. Abstract Are students willing to accept robotic support for learning when their attitudes toward educational robots are moderate? Probably not, as evidence from psychological research has suggested that attitudes predict how people will behave toward an attitude object. Consequently, a negative view of robots could represent a strong barrier to the deployment of robots in educational environments. Attitude change might facilitate a smooth introduction of educational robots into learning settings. Thus, the present research builds on the fact that actively including end users in the prototyping process of a robot might increase positive attitudes toward it. Indeed, our research is among the first works which demonstratethat participation in the prototyping process of an educational robot positively affected attitudes toward educational robots in general and significantly reduced educational robot anxiety. However, students' behavioral intentions toward educational robots were not influenced by participation. These findings raise intriguing questions regarding the relevance of user involvement in the development of robots. Therefore, the discussion focuses on how to improve this process and how user involvement in robot design processes provides a valuable contribution to the acceptance of social robots in everyday life.
