This is a Twitter thread (that would have made a great blog post) where Manuel Lucio Dallo builds a Telegram client for his grandmother (“Yaya”). But this isn’t a typical app, it’s an entire device. The “Yayagram” allows messages to be sent as voice messages via Telegram, and received replies are printed directly on thermal paper.

A very nice idea to allow an old lady, who is no longer comfortable with a phone, let alone a smartphone, to still have easy contact with her children, grandchildren and relatives.
