Silver Surfer 2.0 / Communication device

Silver Surfer 2.0 is a communication device for elderly people still living at home. It helps keeping in touch with friends and family, contacting doctors and organise health services, online shopping, and being part of local and worldwide communities. Designed to be as simple as possible with only an on and off button and a touchscreen where all other functions emerges. The touchscreen makes it easy to change size of icons and text. Silver Surfer 2.0 is slightly bigger than an A4 and is light and easy to move around. It has rubberized grips on the sides and can be positioned flat or with an angle at a table or comfortably held on the lap.
