Question Box: The Internet For Remote Places, No Literacy or Keyboards Required

The Question Box

The Question Box is a project from UC Berkeley’s Rose Shuman to bring some of the benefits of the information on the Internet to places that are too remote or poor to sustain a live Internet link. It works by installing a single-button intercom in the village that is linked to a nearby town where there is a computer with a trained, live operator.

The Battery-Powered Battery Charger

 The Battery-Powered Battery Charger

The P970 can be charged and then taken on the road as a second battery for gadgets with a USB input .

It sounds like a solution waiting for a problem, but Motorola’s P970 battery-powered battery recharger began shipping, four months after the curved, PEBL-like gagdet was announced at the Singapore-hosted CommunicAsia 2006 show. UPDATE (2009):  Motorola’s P970 was Zen-like in its simplicity – a rechargeable battery that recharged your cell phone’s battery via a mini USB port. Too bad it’s no longer on the Motorola Web site.
