News Rock

An interactive device designed for children to learn about the daily news, in a creative manner.

By moving the different tokens; audio news feeds are streamed from the internet through an RFID reader & Arduino system. 

 

Each of the rock-shaped tokens represent a different category; World, Sport, Animal and Entertainment. The user selects a token, places it into the dip and the news headline plays to the child.

 

The news headlines stream from child’s website BBC NewsRound. The device makes children more inclined to get involved with current affairs through interaction, engagement and excitement.
