I had an idea to reveal the inner workings of a range of devices – such as the iPad. These paper illustrations were made for an animation to promote my iPad application idea for a Kickstarter campaign.

Three years ago tablet computers and smart phones had already become such an integral part of our day-to-day lives, now they have become so much more sophisticated, less glitchy but also much less accessible as a technological platform. Looking inside these devices can make them more accessible again and hopefully easier to understand. Bringing back some of the fun of hacking and the maker culture.

I created everything out of paper to celebrate the tactile nature of the project and tell a story that culminates in the iPad dismantling itself and exposing all of the components inside. The video was edited in After Effects, adding voice and sound effects.
