The new Fox News Deck

October 8, 2013 § Leave a comment

Using large touch surfaces for manipulating news data is probably a good idea, but these 55″ units that Fox have installed in their new News Deck are just comical. But my favourite bit of the video comes at 4′ 12″ where Shepard says:

We call these BATs – Big Area Touchscreens

Of course. What else would “BAT” stand for. Someone in the Fox tech department is not taking this seriously, I think.
