BERG, the London-based design agency responsible for projects such as the Little Printer, has revealed its latest effort: Guardian Headliner, a “newspaper that looks back at you.” Based on an ambitious initial concept that would have used eye-tracking to monitor reading patterns, Headliner focuses on the importance of eyes. Instead of truly looking out at the reader, it employs face detection to crop around eyes in newspaper photographs, blowing them up to fill the screen. Content is taken from an open API provided by British newspaper The Guardian, which commissioned the project.
