Nokia, Ki’i, 2007


The Ki’i book is a mobile handheld device that allows users to create and access self-expressive drawings and comments. The user can then share these to other Ki'i users for easy, visual communication.

With a vision to connect people, the Nokia Very Human Technology Project encompasses the facilitation of existing technologies and mobile phone features in a new manner that encourages rich communication, self expression and creativity. With the advent of Flickr, YouTube, MySpace, and Wikipedia, we observe the trend of the communication industry turning toward Web 2.0, meaning user generated content and community based communication. Furthermore there is a push to bring Web 2.0 into mobile devices.
