Giving the elderly an opportunity to use the internet for the first time.
Senpad - Internet for the elderly is a project for all those who have never used a computer, tablet or smartphone. We've created a possibility for them to take their first step with modern digital devices and the internet. While creating this project we talked a lot with elderly people and learned a lot from them. With this knowledge we were able to create the Senpad.
While designing our screens we concentrated on simplicity. Our main focus was to reduce all the elements on the screen. With this we give the elderly a chance to use our Senpad without any previous knowledge about digital devices. As you can see, every screen has only really necessary information. For example, if you open an article on any website, it's reduced to text with pictures and you don't see all the distracting stuff you have on normal websites.
We created a very easy to use tablet. Therefore we've decided to outsource all the complicated settings. With this all the administration of the Senpad can be done by a friend who's familiar with computers. Additionally this friend has the opportunity to upload pictures to show to the user of the Senpad.
