For, how many of use our social networks to gather data and information? Recognizing our need for speed and documentation, Tangible Interaction has created a kiosk that allows a quick connection to document events.
social media portal is a project by vancouver interactive studio tangible interaction that allows users to upload
social media content from a kiosk. the idea behind the project is to capture the virtual potential of large real world
events. the portal would act as a gateway, connecting these events with online. the kiosk generates photos,
messages and other content and immediately uploads it to the web using social networks of a user’s custom
website. photos are easily captured through the device and brought online in an attempt to bridge the gap
between virtual and physical events. in this sense, the design is a digital photobooth that posts photos online
instead of printing them out.
