Live Paper project is in the media!

Together with the Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz and the Hypothekarbank Lenzburg, the IMRG is researching novel solutions for mortgage consulting, where paper, pencil and even the table are brought to life. We envision a solution, where those traditional elements can be used as before, but – on demand – can be also turned into interactive surfaces with dedicated, individual and dynamic content. While following the paradigm of calm technology (i.e., technology that is hidden in the background and remains non-intrusive throughout the interaction), the envisioned system, Live Paper, enhances the advice not just visually, but transforms also the practices around knowledge transfer, explanation, and exploration of possible mortgage offerings.
