Approximately 80% of the world has access to radios, and radio signals can reach even the most remote places in the world. Unlike mobile phones, radios do not require subscription to a service.


‘BroadCapture’ enables those without access to internet or mobile phones to receive information without subscription to a service. The information is sent on a radio frequency from community radio stations. This can be personal messages, weather updates or time.


‘BroadCapture’ is an inexpensive but valuable device that gives the underprivileged access to knowledge for free.
