“Imagine losing access to the internet, power, email and phone service all at once. With the rapid pace of natural disasters globally, lines of communication too often fail and it’s hard to find solid ground, both in terms of physical shelter and emotional well-being. New wireless solutions will help reconnect, gather and share crucial information community-wide when infrastructure fails. With a global team of experts, that’s exactly what we’re building.”
That’s how we won the 2nd prize at the Mozilla WINS Challenge – Wireless Innovations for the Networked Society. Of course I only played a small part in designing the enclosure, but this project has gotten really close to my heart: open source innovation with lifesaving impact. Which does now have the funds to build their next generation device: with custom pcb and e-ink screen.
