University project to produce interactive newsprint in Preston seeks volunteers
Imagine a newspaper that can connect to the internet, and lets readers listen to audio, vote on issues of the day and access social media. Interactive Newsprint – a research project based at UCLan – is currently making a paper-platform that does just that…
Over the last 18 months, we’ve worked with various Preston groups to develop a range of different prototypes, and now we’re looking to discover what Prestonians think of our work.
We’re eagerly seeking Blog Preston volunteers (as well as their friends or family) to help test and feedback on the new technology, and take our research forward. Ideally, we’re looking to hear from people who fall into two camps. Members of our first group would be those who consume their news and media from online sources. The second are people who prefer newspapers and magazines.
A series of workshops will take place over the course of the week beginning November 12, and those who give their time will receive a small payment for taking part.
