We feature an interactive wireless kiosk outpost which enables community inhabitants to receive “push down” information from civic institutions as well as an uplink of community input. Applications which differentiate this system from others include content presentation in icon and pictogram form with audible informational responses spoken in local dialects.
This unique feature allows illiterate persons, as well as others, to navigate the touchscreen system and enjoy access to automatically updated information, as well as send verbal and video responses back to the center when needed.
Built-in decentralized mini server functionality can support the automatic distribution and ultra low power transmission of local radio, television or educational programming while simultaneously providing a parallel two-way communications network. This system can run outside, and off of, legacy telecom grids.
An interlinked distance callbox option creates robust capacity for disenfranchised communities to call for local help with security or other emergency situations. This option provides for low cost intranet connection to other villages and the greater world if desired. The system can be powered by solar, wind, hydro or municipal sources and is designed for remote, rural, or municipal circumstances.
Current prototypes communicate in English, Dari, and Spanish languages and requires of the user absolutely no ability to read, unless the system is being used in a distance learning context. For this reason they are ideal for field work where fresh ongoing information is being presented and database responses are collected - without the exposure of field workers to distressed conditions. System users and respondents can be authenticated by a "roaming" VPN personal identification number which is carried throughout the regional, national or international network. This system is modular and scalable, but can support up to sixty million simultaneous accounts.
