At NewsCubed we care about journalism and technology, and how one can help the other innovate. The NewsCube tool is our first contribution in this area, but there are plenty of other opportunities. We are interested in the possibilities of augmented reality, physical computing and the internet of things, for example.

Interaction design is a fabulous field and as the NewsCubed research project progresses, we are learning more about how journalism might benefit from a bit of design thinking. We are keen to bring these methods to other tech-focussed journalism projects through research, teaching or consulting.

The publications list below shows what we’ve been working on on the academic front. In our Resources section you’ll find presentations, videos and other handy downloads. There’s an outline of a funky journalism and interaction design initiative at the University of Queensland, and details of events we’re involved in.

We’d love to collaborate, so if you have a project you think we could be involved in, get in touch:
