Internet-in-a-Box (3)

Sure Ralueke

Happy to collaborate. Would love to see the devices being made and distributed locally. The devices are made up of three peices of hardware 1) a raspberry pi zero w 2) a class 10 micro SD card 3) a plastic box.

The 3D printing file (stl) for the box is avaliable under an open license so you can print them locally. We can work on an image file or a few different image files for different sizes of micro SD cards. We have a 16 Gb version with English medical content plus Igbo, Hausa, and Yoruba which looks like this http://medbox.iiab.me/medbox-ng/ We have shipped about a dozen to Nigeria so far.

You can download that image file from our partners at Internet Archives here https://archive.org/details/iiab-6.4-180219-medbox-beta2.1-nigeria-g3ea4... We are using actual open access licenses, thus commercial reuse is allowed.
