BRCK: A Backup Generator for the Internet built for Africa

The BRCK is the easiest, most reliable way to connect to the internet, anywhere in the world, even when you don't have electricity.  All kinds of jobs require steady connectivity, even when infrastructure is spotty due to wireless connections, intermittent power, or devices that can’t share connections. The Ushahidi team set out to redesign connectivity for the world we live in - Africa. Ushahidi, Inc. is a non-profit software company that develops free and open source software.  Juliana Rotich, the Executive Director for Ushahidi, speaks about the BRCK at the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh on the June 11, 2013.
"If it works in Africa, it can work any where...Out of Adversity can come Innovation...What happens when Africans are no longer Global Consumers of Solutions, but Creators"
