Sankofa Red (prototype)

<< back to the list of all prototypes

This page is about Sankofa Red, our first physical prototype. 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 the hardware of our PiPhone kit.
