Joto, by Those

Design studio Those has launched Joto, a display which looks to make digital visualisations more interactive.

Joto is a wipe-clean digital display with a pen and eraser attachment, and a mechanical arm that physically draws out images and words. It is controlled via an app.

Users use the app to send words or images to Joto, which stimulates the arm and turns them into drawings.

The idea behind the project is to provide an interesting way to “present information off-screen”, says Those, in a “tangible form”.

Joto was one of 2016’s Beazley Designs of the Year, which went on display at London’s Design Museum at the end of last year.

It has launched as a Kickstarter, with Those looking to raise £100,000 by next month to make the project a reality.
