Africa: UNICEF updating Uganda's Digital Kiosk computing platform | GizMag.com | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

For the past couple of years, UNICEF Uganda and partners have been designing, developing, prototyping and rolling out youth-focused community computers that can operate on mains power where available, or solar-power in remote rural areas. Work has just finished on the design of the second generation Digital Kiosk, and the UK's fanless computer specialist Aleutia is now working on a new open source, low power computer system to squeeze into the table-topped repurposed oil drum that will become the Digital Drum.


The aim of the Digital Kiosk project was to develop a rugged, multi-use computer kiosk to address the educational needs of young people, to be installed in established youth centers, community resource hubs, business centers, teacher colleges and other education hubs throughout Uganda. Though some community facilities have access to AC power and the internet, many do not, so the system needed to be able to operate on solar power and include sufficient offline digital content to cater for the educational and locally relevant needs of users.


The design brief called for systems that were easy to use and able to withstand the rigors of frequent use. They also needed to be pretty easy to repair on the ground. The first generation Digital Youth Kiosk comprises three computer workstations with small wall-mounted screens and input peripherals on a shelf-like table running the length of the installation.
