Display of eSticky: device’s design
The practical functions of ease of use, cost consciousness, and environmental issues are the terms that can be used to describe the properties of the eSticky display.
In the design sketches-illustrated in this article-we can find the following components:
- Answer button.
- E-Ink / e-Paper display module.
- LED signal light – used carefully to save energy;
- Speaker – used sparingly to save energy;
- Made of environmentally safe materials, bumper with protective function and frame;
- Mounting on magnetic walls, stand;
Display of eSticky: main features
The aesthetic function is characterized by a composition of wood and fabric. The surfaces are not excessively shiny, glaring and sparkling so as not to create any discomfort to users. In addition, the color and design characterized by curves and partially soft shapes help give eSticky a friendly appearance.
Natural coloring with bright and balanced color contrasts are always current and never go out of fashion. That is why users who use eSticky can appreciate the design and its functionality more.
The first function is the clear recognition of the display as a reading element: immediately recognizable, with a concave shape that helps to easily recognize its function and mode of use.
The rounded ends of the casing give the user a strong feeling of safety, as it will not immediately break in the event of a bump and is adequately protected if it falls to the ground.
In addition, the universal design shows how eSticky can be used by everyone. It by no means has the appearance of a high-tech product exclusive to young people.
On a personal level, it can be adapted to one’s needs by adding photos and other materials. This makes the device more acceptable even by people with difficulties or more reluctant to use it.
To date, several variations of the design form have been developed, and some of them have been further refined and expanded (see Figure 1).
Parallel profile devices
The profile of this design is parallel. There should be enough space to integrate all the hardware in a compact case. The top and bottom parts are covered with fabric. The parts on the left and right are wooden and also function as battery covers (see Figure 2).
The U-shaped frame is partly made of wood, while the bottom part is covered with fabric. The number of parts is very small (see figure 3).
Devices with thin components in the upper part
The batteries are located in the lower part of the device. In this case a thin display can be made from top to bottom. An additional cover can be attached to the back of the display for more hardware space (see figure 4).
Again we will have a U-shaped frame part made of wood, while only the bottom part is covered with fabric. The back panel provides space for batteries and hardware (see figure 5).
Devices with minimized display thickness
The batteries are located in the edges of the housing. This allows the display thickness to be minimized. It is possible to achieve a thin design that is more paper-like than the other design proposals (see figure 6 and figure 7).
