Case Study 2010

Overview

One of the major benefits of having gadgets is that it constantly connects us to the world and whats happening in it. Though these technological devices have allowed us to interact with data from anywhere we choose, there isn’t a unique delivery system for the information they’re delivering especially when news is concerned. The printed versions of newspapers can offer mobility, much like a device, but access to content can be cumbersome in certain reading situations. How do we combine the affordances of print and online versions of news and translate that hybrid into a single device? A medium that conforms to human practices and the varied scenarios of accessing news.

Interactive Touch Prototype

Process

We first compared current newspaper affordances & screen base news formats of other digital readers. These devices tout and clearly deliver on mobility, information archiving, and multimedia content. Yet the interaction of digital devices is unfamiliar in contrast to the original, analog behaviors of printed news. The virtual interactions we found to be unintuitive and sterile compared to the interactions that have been developed for centuries, and most notably lacks the emotional engagement had with the traditional reading behaviors. Also, we looked at several different newspapers and found common characteristics in the design of the grid system. From that, we tried to adopt the newspaper grid systems to our own device and also, screen based device’s durability and interactivity.
