ideas, innovations and apps for social work in the age of smartphones and social media
Recently we had a look at BRCK – a device that serves as a kind of backup for the internet in rural areas like Africa. After a successful Kickstarter campaign BRCK is going into production and can be ordered now. Another handy device for areas with a lack of open internet access is LibraryBox, which is developed by Jason Griffey and now running on Kickstarter.
LibraryBox is an open source, portable digital file distribution tool based on inexpensive hardware that enables delivery of educational, healthcare, and other vital information to individuals off the grid.
