Just read about this super interesting new method to deliver a digital library that comes with its own Wi-Fi hotspot – useful for many rural areas around the globe.

Arizona State University professor Laura Hosman in the Schools of Engineering and the School for the Future of Innovation in Society created this innovative device, the Solar Powered Educational Learning Library, known as SolarSPELL

WHAT IS IT?  A digital library full of educational resources that generates its own Wi-Fi signal and solar power though any internet-capable device, such as an iPad, laptop or smartphone. AKA – a self-powered plug-and-play kit, portable enough to fit into a backpack.
