E-TukTuk, mobile technology and Sri Lanka

“eTUKTUK takes internet and radio to Sri Lankan villages

Really cool article about hoe rickshaws are being adapted as mobile radio stations. It’s an innovative approach using an iconic vehicle, to provide a voice to people in hard to reach places.

The eTUKTUK is a self-contained mobile telecentre and radio broadcasting unit which travels into remote villages in the Kothmale region and provide communities the opportunity to participate in the KCR’s programming as well as have access to new digital technologies and internet.
