Core77 friend Shaun Hutchinson has published a set of photos from the Royal College of Art's 2008 Interim Show. Shown above is Ticker Tape, by Will Carey:
Ticker Tape is an Internet radio for people who suffer from Euphobia, "a persistent abnormal and unwanted fear of hearing good news". Using RSS feeds, ticker tape scans for light hearted news stories from around the world broadcasting them to the listener who can manage the content via the Tickers tape website.
Pulling the cord allows the listener to choose the duration of the broadcast. The designer, Will Carey from the Royal College of Art's Design Interactions MA course, says that this project explores playful interfaces for future digital radio.
The current crop of photos includes projects from Industrial Design Engnineering and Design Interactions, with more from Design Products coming soon.
