The user-interface is There is no user interface. Well, not quite, but the design goal is that Grandma does not have to push any buttons. The pictures and videos just arrive! It is true that the 'daughter' can send a youtube and then play it remotely; even Skype can work without a touch, your face is there and you're talking with Grandma now!. Of course if Grandma can manage a mouse or keybooard the the experience is richer. The mantra is As Simple as Possible.
These pictures earn the Android Tablet its place in Grandma's living room. Even if
families are too far away to visit often, special occasions can still be shared and
loved ones included.

Skype famously opens the whole world of Video Conferencing in a senior's living room. It is set up to receive calls more than to answer them. Skype buzzes and clicks when there is a call, and all you have to do is touch the green Video camera Icon and you see the other party (and they can see you too). This is great for talking to grandchildren and talking to nurses too. You can have a private conference from your living room. Talk to your nurse today! it's free!
