An Interactive Newspaper

The future of printed press?

While vacationing in Zürich, I had the privilege to visit its Landesmuseum, the Swiss National Museum).

Of the great many exhibits here, one that most impressed me was this interactive journal; a digital journal, projected onto plain paper, that changes and reacts as you scroll through it.

Reading can be a tactile and even olfactory pleasure. For any one who’s sat curled up in an armchair, or tucked away between the aisles of bookstore,  book in lap..scent of aged paper wafting in their nostrils… fingers gliding across a page, their anticipation builds as one nears the bottom of the page, readying for that page turn.

The format of book appeals to us bibliophiles who appreciate the weight of a printed page. It equally appeals to we tech-savvy research moles, who prefer to navigate across the web, in order to pull together a larger narrative.

Cheers,

  1. Fascinating! Thanks for this information. Had no idea that this combination of digital and physical existed.

    1. Thanks, Lisa. It was great, and the paper had that old worn but sturdy feel to it that was addictively pleasing to touch. They even cleverly added what looked like a coffee stain on one page. ‘Ausgezeichnet!’
