The New Library

School project: We were asked to show our vision for the future of the Danish library. Together with Anthropology Students we researched and came up with the idea to combine the physical book and the digital book into one. By using small RFID chips inside the physical book, we could digitally identify the physical book, and make it become interactive on the iPad. We also designed a new information screen inside the library to accommodate different kinds of groups who visit the library every day. The idea was picked as the winner out of 8 projects by representatives from The Danish Public Libraries, and the think-tank "Future Libraries".
