Caseboard - Kingston hackSpace

Kingston hackSpace


Project Designed by the T.r. Bennett, Graphic Design BA

Digital communication has been a double-edged sword. We now have faster typing speeds, but “um”s and “ah”s are more prevalent in speech than ever before. Have we become too dependant on the extra time the “send” button provides us?

Using Caseboard, you can type messages, but there is no backspace. If you wait too long between words, stalling phrases are added. This interface asks users to reflect on their own speech patterns. Do your online and offline selves... uh... talk in different tones? Do you feel at ease when a keyboard... like... doesn’t wait for you?

This brings together a number of registers of communication, combining the layout of old type face boxes with thermal printer readouts with elements of modern conversation into one piece of technology in a very graceful way. It raises attention to the way electronics has altered the way people communicate. I'm more conscious of the message I'm writing right now after contemplating this project! If you had two interfaces, with two operators, and recorded the conversation that took place, I'd be interested to see the readouts from the printer, this could lead to interesting results.
