“Flux is a video chat device designed for elderly users. Its physical controls and simple interface provide a platform for users to connect with family via Google Hangouts. Allowing family to join the call on any personal device gives it mainstream appeal, so it can be adopted by anyone. While not in use Flux displays a family photograph, fading over time to indicate when you last connected. Flux was conceived in response to research into impressions elderly adults have of modern technology. Many interfaces aren’t designed to suit their needs, often taking a long time to learn and lacking similarities.”
