We recently had an impressive demonstration of BRCK from its CTO Reg Orton in Nairobi. A standalone powered “hub for all local devices,” BRCK also serves as an internet-in-a-box connectivity solution. As the BRCK website declares, “If it works in Africa, it’ll work anywhere.” We look forward to testing these for posting to Navvi.com in remote areas.
