The aim of BRELOMATE 2 is to develop a television set combined with a tablet into a user friendly and inexpensive centerpiece of an information, communication and gaming platform for elderly people.
Based on experiences with a prototype for card games in combination with video conferencing, a market ready product will be developed by continuously involving prospective users and tested in an extensive field study.

BRELOMATE 2 is a follow-up project of BRELOMATE.

The two-year project is funded by a program called "benefit" of The Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG), which is part of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology (bmvit) and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (bmwfw).
