Future technology innovation driven by and for emergent users. Open-source toolkits of hardware, software and methods for anyone, anywhere to use and build upon.
All of the technologies developed are open-source, available to freely download, use and adapt as part of the following toolkits
The Digital Inclusion Toolkit is a combination of innovation methods and open-source, future-looking digital and mobile tools created with and for currently under-served users in diverse communities in India, Kenya and South Africa.
The Toolkit is made up of the following elements:
The Better Together Toolkit is an open-source mobile architecture that helps separate complex apps and services over multiple devices. Its plugin-based framework allows simple integration with existing platforms, supporting local sharing of both interaction and resources.
PickCells is a demonstration of physically reconfigurable touchscreens made of individual interactive cells. The PickCells Toolkit includes hardware and software sources and documentation to get you started in making your own cell-composed touchscreens.
