The main idea of this product was to be able to provide different interfaces located in its different faces according to its different uses in public or private environment and definning one face to one user.
From a public standpoint, in its rear face we can see a slot which is used to insert the card with the name of the candidate selected. This way we have the option to double count the votes in case we dont trust the virtual count.
To count the voting cards located in the box, we need to flip the product and use its bottom interface, which is meant for maintenance and software load purposes.
From a private standpoint, we have the necessary privacy features so that it could be used outside a booth. We also have a screen where the different candidates are displayed so that we can select by using the user inclusive interface, also in braile system (with the option of plugging headphones so that a non vident person can vote unsupervised).
The whole interrface has a sliding mechanism, unveiling the â€œprivate slotâ€ so that you can insert your â€œvoting cardâ€, activating the machine. We also have folding privacy sidewalls so that when we transport the product, the lcd visor is protected by them.
Because of having folding and sliding options, the dimensions of the product are variable, making it effective and â€œspace-friendlyâ€ to transport to the vote counting stations when the election day is over.
