Researchers at UCLan are working with technology that could transform newspapers and bring them into the 21st Century.
Dubbed Interactive Newsprint, the research project has made a number of prototypes - including an interactive version of the Lancashire Evening Post - that demonstrate how ‘printed electronics’ technology could be used in future.
Now they are keen to see how people read, listen and use the newspaper, and are arranging testing sessions during the course of the week beginning November 19.
The sessions, based at UCLan, will last around an hour, and volunteers will be eligible for a small payment for their time.
Participants who take part would ideally fall into one of two camps.
Members of the first group would get their news from online sources such as websites or social media, and the second would access news via more traditional means - such as local or national newspapers and magazines.
