2007 / Grad project
Newsware is a toolkit for news reporters. It contains of a set of compact digital devices that aim to facilitate the daily business of reporters. Part of Newsware is the NotePad, a tablet computer with double-sided display, a simple Camera and the VoiceStick for audio recordings. A soft keyboard completes the kit. All of the components work individually or connected in a system, e.g. the Camera doesn’t have a display because the NotePad can be used for that. In my research I interviewed international journalists, then I developed the design concept and built the 3D and physical models. The interaction design was an important part of my concept so I also built software prototypes. The final photo shooting provided me with images of real people using my products.
