After the worldwide innovation of the Ideas Box, Libraries Without Borders (LWB) has created the KoomBook: the digital library of the future. Both autonomous and ultra-portable, the KoomBook works without an internet connection to spread knowledge and information in even the most remote locations.
The KoomBook, roughly the size of a book, creates a wi-fi hotspot on which users can connect with their smartphones, tablets or computers to access thousands of educational, cultural and training resources. The KoomBook can also be hooked up to a television or video projector for group activities.
Placed in a library, school, rural medical facility or even at home, the KoomBook can allow up to 20 simultaneous users to connect at the same time and can share information in many formats such as text, audio, video and online classes. Once connected to the internet, the KoomBook automatically uploads all the content that was created offline.
