Enter the DigiTruck. A 40-foot steel cargo container converted into a mobile computing unit. It is equipped with solar panels capable of fully powering it for several days at a time so it can reach remote rural villages with no electricity. The DigiTruck is also triple-insulated to protect against heat. Inside the DigiTruck includes laptops, tablets, printers, routers and a LED TV flat-screen monitor.
