Make elderly more connected to social and political news by putting community in focus.
Side project - 1 week
* Personal note: For this concept, I have been slightly inspired by Gezi protests in Turkey, Summer 2013 where elderly couldn't reach the real information as mainstream media has been censored by the government.

Make elderly more connected to social and political news.
Elderly people are in need of better communication channels as they are not so active on social media as younger people. Purely digital channels are not widely and actively used by them. This is causing them difficulty to get real-time news on what's happening in their neighborhood/country and also in their close circle(family/friends).
News would become accessible to them if it would come through a physical object that they would be familiar using. I got inspired by looking at the daily tools of 50+ years old people and their favorite interaction methods where objects have few but prominent interaction points.
