Information Center

Information Center is a one-stop, glanceable interface for your upcoming calendar events, the local weather, trending news headlines, and more. This web-based system allows the user to organize a set of relevant information blocks that intermittently update themselves. When placed in a relevant location, Information Center acts as a passive, always up-to-date hub for the things you find important.

Information Center runs on a pre-built system consisting of a retina touchscreen LCD, a lithium-ion battery, and a quad-core ARM-based processor, mounted in a custom wood frame. This always-on system runs a custom version of Android that's sole purpose is to display this information, with no user-interface chrome getting in the way and requiring no user input, ever.
