Due to India’s culture of obedience, Aditi is expected to drop out of school to marry at a young age. With her demanding life of doing house chores and work, she is severely lacking proper education which restricts her from pursuing any career.
Origami's form and content adopts to the users' environment and need
Origami is a device that children can carry with them, and can change the outcome of their education. The device uses a foldable E-ink display with flexible support material which allows it to transform into 4 different modes: Full, booklet, tent and pocket mode.
Utilizing contextual App streaming
We removed Apps and putting a focus on contextual content instead. The right Apps are streamed to the device at the right time and place which allows for self-organized learning. Children can spend less time searching through the App store and more time on consuming educational content.
Durability, flexibility and safety
No moving parts increase durability,flexibility and safety. These are crutial design criteria for Origami and our user. With soft silicon cover, the four panels on the back provide extra protection and keep the device from any possible damages such as cracking the screen, water or dirt. Soft-touch finish of the silicone provides comfort and feels great in small hands.
Energy efficient E-ink display
One of the design criteria we focused was to make our product accessible to everyone. Instead of high tech touch screen, color E-ink touch display is used to make Origami inexpensive which makes it accessible and also reduces battery cosumption. By increasing accessibility of a educational mobile device, children in Daharavi, India can experience learning throughout the day seamlessly.
