– Tangible social networking

I found an example of a nice social networking site/ device for elderly. It was featured at Yanko and is currently being worked out into a real device. More info on this development can be found on the website. allows you to stay in touch with family and friends through a tangible user interface. Each one of your social connections is represented by a tangible ‘avatar’ (a token) which can be sticked onto the screen, linking that specific person’s social updates to your screen.

What I like so much about is the powerful integration of the tangible artefacts and the interface providing people with all the information about a contact: status updates, photos, news, etc.
