It is an interesting theory used in the design discipline
(engineering/industrial design/design) and provides an locus for perceiving
what could be before us, whether known or unknown, as a relationship between
the actor (human in my thesis) and technology (such as HCI) as the prospect
of being afforded (*not* in a monetary sense, but in relation to melioristic
