ONGOING PROJECT

News Things

Exploring new ways to engage with news, through connected-objects.

The project places users at the centre of the innovation process and creates physical-digital prototypes that convey news and editorial content, which will be placed in people’s homes or public spaces. The project also examines IoT infrastructure and examines how IoT-driven data could benefit news publishers, how new content management systems can power connected objects and the commercial opportunities that NewsThings create.

The solution

NewsThings’ combines news, information, ambient design approaches and the Internet of Things (IoT) to explore how people engage and interact with co-designed connected objects.

The outcome

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, ne sea utroque euripidis, quas offendit tractatos est eu, cu civibus detracto interesset pri. Est cu admodum hendrerit, possit perpetua expetendis ex eum, invidunt persequeris ad mei. Vel erant semper ei. Ne duo minimum reprimique, tale aeque dicunt ad mel.

It’s actually a cone that sits on your desk and moves around to warn editors if users are reacting negatively to FB posts. Seriously!
