Vim

Vim is a prototype tangible narrative about energy futures. It is designed to illustrate how a story about a public issue could be designed for physical interaction and to learn whether that interaction can encourage participation in that issue.

The design consists of a wooden box featuring a solar panel and dials. It produces a story feed based on the reader’s preferences, along with a question for them to answer. Story feeds are designed as news briefs and include items from the past, present and future.
