How does your family share precious photos and information? Who keeps it all safe for the future?
As part of the OzCHI 2013 Student Design Challenge, we found people tend to use email to share and store family content. Different generations have different preferences for communicating: email, social media and other tools. So family possessions are dispersed across multiple online systems and user accounts.
Family Room aims to help people collate and curate shared family content in a shared online space. This would not only reduce risk and complexity, but also support collective reminiscence and intergenerational connectedness.
We received Second Prize in the OzCHI challenge.
