One Token, two Modules and unending possibilities

Token - Something real representing the chains of numbers we actually buy. Something to hold; nice proportions 50 x 50 x 6 mm, nice weight a bit heavier than one may expect. Something to collect. Modules - Bigger space for lit communication designed to combine both the exposition and Pos function. Two sizes; A4 and A5 to build any stand one desires. Other bits of the system - A3 module of touch-screen, big LCD, Side and corner frames, floor bases and many others possible...

What is the core principle of your idea?

To communicate and sale something tangible in a most flexible ie. modular way.

Can your idea be applied to different formats (in a bookstore, at a trade fair, at a conference)?

The modular character of the system allows any format from the counter or hand display to big walls or whole stands.

Would it be possible to turn your idea into a reality, or at least create a prototype of it, at short notice, i.e. by the Frankfurt Book Fair in October 2014?

A prototype of some example of the floor stand would be possible.

What do you estimate the costs for the prototype or the final implementation of your idea to be?

3000-5000 Euro for The Two sided 20 modules stand (the price of manufacturing in Krakow Poland)
