Hitnet reaches communities in the most remote corners of the world. Including; Guadalcanal & Malaita islands, Alice Springs, Woorabinda and Ngukurr.
Hitnet is an innovative Australian ‘Communication for Development’ company that produces rich learning media with and for those living on the wrong side of the digital divide. They work with populations marginalised by culture, technology, socio-economic disadvantage and distance. Hitnet recognised the power of technology to address some of these issues, and approached us to produce a tailor made interactive kiosk based on the Neon model.
The kiosks not only had to provide information, but given the locations of the target population, it has to also be able to withstand the conditions of the harsh and remote environments in which they would operate. The kiosks had to be rugged, highly reliable, and require little servicing.
Hitnet, working with the communities, developed a contextually and culturally sensitive, relevant health education portfolio which was loaded into the kiosks.
The kiosks were installed throughout the most remote areas of Australia – giving Hitnet a platform to provide an intuitive learning experience which educates these communities on the relevant health issues concerning them.
Interactive screens encourage and increase visitor engagement with exhibits.The screens are also able to be updated with new exhibits and information.
