A user-centered design approach based on ethnographic interviews and prototype evaluations, our research group envisioned a home-based pervasive communication system. The Electronic Family Newspaper (EFN) facilitates communication between elders and their families living abroad. The system is a blogging tool that operates on a tablet PC. Family members can access the system through any Web browser. The EFN lets users share messages, attach pictures, and create news sections, and elders can play the included memory game (based on revealing pairs of pictures).
