Description

People with cell phones often take it for granted how much knowledge is at their fingertips. Many people without cell phones don’t have easy instant access to the information that others do, leaving them in the dark. This kiosk would aid the homeless community, tourists, and people whose cell phones are not working. This is often overlooked by middle and upper class people, who have cell phones ingrained as a way of life.

People that do not have access to information miss out on opportunities to better their situation. There are many resources such as educational, medical, and professional tools. These people are also missing out on breaking news and current events. The lack of the resources in someone’s life puts them at a disadvantage.
