WHAT PROBLEM IS SPOTROTTER SOLVING ?
1/3 of the world’s population has access to Internet, but… while travelling connection can be very limited either because of the cost of roaming or limited connectivity. Then, how to have access to information or to share it with other?
2/3 of the world’s population has no access is not connected thus there is no access to basic and free information
Internet access is often controlled or restricted thus fundamental right to information is denied
HOW DOES IT WORK ?
THE SPOTROTTER APP
The Spotrotter app allows sharing of content from one tablet or smartphone to one or more mobile devices in the vicinity. It’s a hotspot, similar to Bluethooth but instead of one-to-one connection it allows sharing with several devices simultaneously.People who want to make content available only has to install Spotrotter App, receivers do not have to install anything in their device.
The Spot-Box is a mobile device with a greater storage. Any Wi-Fi enable device (smartphone, tablets and laptops) can connect to the Spot-Box without need of Internet connection.Spot-Box can be customized to respond to specific needs of communities and organizations, e.g. a network of Spot-Box can be implemented to increase coverage, in such a case it is possible to synchronize the update of all connected boxes at once.
CREATING WELLS OF INFORMATION
According to recent studies information delivered by Internet is 100 times too expensive. Thus to bring affordable information to 5 billions people the cost of data delivery has to be cheaper. To achieve this goal, the idea is as simple as to create “wells” of information instead of installing water pipes:People will get information from local sources, a Spot-Box, download it in their mobile device and then share it with others who can in turn regain the information and share with other, and so on.
