Travorb–Digital Travel Book Concept
The hybrid exploration of the book incorporated the tangible qualities of the traditional book and the possibilities of physically segregating the information. Just as a single tablet or sheet of paper, it would also be easily portable and quickly accessible.
Cover Travob is a concept electronic travel device that aims to capture the need for a customized experience. The central idea is to inform, suggest, facilitate, trigger and personalize the travel experience. In this is case the traveller has chosen New York. The access drawer is a permanent feature on all pages and allows a quick access to latent information.
Travel Book This mode allows the user to navigate through the rich content of the book based on customized filters. The user also has the ability to map the book in detail (unfiltered content) using bookmark, tag, highlight, make notes and browse content. In addition, the user is provided with a feature called map-it, through which he may tag preferred areas onto the map, thereby connecting the planning and mapping modes.
Planning and Mapping The Planning and Mapping mode allows the user to plan his/ her stay in a city. He is given local opinions and can connect with other traveler through orbconnect to gather their feedback.
Backpack The Backpack mode is a collection of notes and other media data such as videos, photos and audio. This also has other features like orbconnect and orbit. orbconnect is a network based feature that allows the traveler to connect with other traveler within the orbconnect network. Orbit, on the other hand, provides the traveler with an opportunity to explore the city in a random uncharted way.
