VS-Pi Link

This is a pretty cool Raspberry Pi project.

From the VillageScience info page:

It’s inexpensive. Fully assembled, we’re aiming for a cost of about US$65 per unit;

It’s efficient. Our device needs very little electricity to operate and can run on solar power, a battery, or even a water wheel in a stream;

It’s useful. VS-Pi comes “pre-loaded” with culturally-relevant, local language content from a variety of partners: educational texts, health videos, agricultural information, financial literacy training – all tailored to each community’s needs.

You get to tinker and your work helps people in ways you can’t even imagine. Great idea from fellow nerds Justin Lancy and Nick Wynja.
