Interactive Newsprint worked together with people in communities from Preston and beyond to experiment with a brand new technology called interactive paper. Researchers from UCLan, Dundee and Surrey want to find out whether interactive paper could become a really interesting way of telling news stories or giving out information about what’s happening in the local community: and potentially create a new platform for community news. The project ran between 2011-2013.
