Sankofa Red (prototype)

<< back to the list of all prototypes

This page is about Sankofa Red, our first physical prototype — currently in development.  The design pulls from our design pitches for the neighborhood phonebooth.  It was first publicly shown at a soft launch in late November 2013 (see article on Streetsblog).  As for the name, see our post on why Sankofa.  The prototype involves our PiPhone kit.
