NewsFlash is a social way to experience the global and local range of current events. People see a tapestry of newspaper front-pages. The headlines and main photos tell part of the story, NewsFlash tells you the rest. People point their phones at a headline or picture of interest to bring up a feed of the article text from that given paper. The data emanates from the screen and and is captured by a cell phone camera–any number of people can see it at once and discuss the panoply of ongoing events. NewsFlash creates a local space that is simultaneously interactive and provocative. We hope it gets people talking.
