It is amazing the impact a 1000 Watt-Hour a day energy source can have in the world. We have developed such energy sources based on Wind and Solar technologies. We will be prototyping these devices during the IAP. In addition, we will also be prototyping the following:- 1) Flush Toilet 2) Block Maker 3) Self Powered Internet Access Point.

These technologies can be combined to create a Virtual Community Center that can be located almost any where in the world. At this Center, you can take courses, visit a doctor, watch a movie, connect to the Internet, etc.
