What It Looks Like
- Medical Centre – The tele-medical centre will use the Internet to link patients in remote villages with doctors at major city hospitals. The solar hospital will utilise the latest networking and conference technologies including video conferencing.
- Portable Health Centre – To enable greater access to healthcare delivery, the village will include vehicles that will take the medical centre resources out to those who need them. These vehicles will also be solar powered.
- Internet School – Samsung will take advantage of the Internet to provide online schools with curriculum and programs tailored to each unique culture and geographic area. Curriculum materials will all be stored at a central data centre and accessed by students during the day.
- Solar Lanterns – Solar powered lanterns will be used to provide lighting inside the digital village as well as homes, businesses and offices within the general vicinity. Samsung believes their lighting systems can provide adequate lighting for as long as 10 years before needing replacement.
