This paper describes FRIDGE, an experimental prototype of a simple home messaging appliance, which combines a graspable user interface and pen input. FRIDGE is designed to be used without explanation and to enable basic e-mail and announcement-board facilities between family members. We describe the concept, the rationale for its design, the interaction with the prototype system and early results from its evaluation.
