Awatu / Computer with remote controls


Awatu came from studies on education on 'ribeirinha' communities that provided information about isolated places, which were used to make a product that would work in any situation.
It's a device that brings technology to its users in an intuitive way. There's a touch screen computer with a projector for teachers and that holds a set of remote controls for the students, which interact with the projection. They're made with rigid plastic with rubber on the borders to protect the inside of the devices. Photovoltaic cells on the computer's surface are an alternative source of energy.
