Dokä is a system that connects and develops different entities simultaneously. The service comes from an agreement between Dokä and the municipality, the first offers the system while the second provides the camera to retiree’s users. Then, the retirees make their expertise available for an audience composed essentially of public entities such as schools, universities, and libraries. The active exchange between users and audience guarantees to the municipality the welfare of both parties, actively involving back retirees in society. Dokä system allows retirees to share their expertise in an interdisciplinary and intergenerational context in a practical and instantaneous way.

The shape of the Dokä camera is simple and easy to use, and it is suitable for users and their needs. A magnetic clip fixes the product to the user’s clothing, allowing the audience to observe the set directly from the point of view of the retiree while the microphone transmits explanations and comments. In order to create effective contents, the Dokä package provides instructions to build supporting structures inspired by the DIY concept of pipes tripods. Simple PVC pipes become the key tool to support scenic elements such as lights, microphones, and alternative cameras.
