UNI

A portable local hotspot that makes offline resources accessible.

“The tests we conducted during a pilot project with Grey-Box, as part of a partnership with the Digi-Hub Shawinigan, allow us to envision greater autonomy and fluidity in the field experience we offer at the Forges-du-Saint-Maurice, by improving connectivity for an outdoor audio tour.”

Martine Lagacé,
Visitor Experience Manager, Mauricie and Western Quebec Field Unit

PORTABILITY

We have developed technology to ensure that UNI can go anywhere without being bulky – it weighs less than a phone!

LOW POWER

UNI barely uses electricity, so if a storm causes a blackout, a simple phone battery charger provides power for a whole day.

ENVIRONMENT RESISTANT

UNI is dust and heat-resistant, because you never know what might happen, or where it can happen.

LONG RANGE

Communities can connect to UNI with what they have at hand within 100 metres of the box. You don’t even need a computer: a cell phone will do.

WEIGHS LESS THAN AN ENCYCLOPEDIA

UNI is lighter than the average phone and you can fit over 10 of them in a small backpack.

ADD CONTENT IN 2 CLICKS

Simply connect a USB key or a memory card to add content.

CUSTOMIZABLE

Although UNI comes with preloaded resources such as Wikipedia, you can add your own as well!

POWER ANYWHERE

UNI is wall-outlet, portable battery and solar-power friendly – making it easy to connect anywhere.

LOW POWER USAGE

UNI is power-efficient and compatible with consumer-friendly portable batteries that can give up to 72 hours of power.

ROUGH & TOUGH

Dust, humidity, cold, heat, pressure, you name it! This box is designed to resist extreme environments. Leave it in the field, and it will still be there when you are back.

R

HIGHLY COMPATIBLE

UNI works with the devices that already used by the local population— such as older Android phones and laptops.

Range of remote Wi-Fi product

CONNECT WITHIN 100 METERS

UNI has a range of 100 metres— with just one box, you can reach out to a large part of the community.

CONNECTS TO 10 DEVICES AT ONCE

Using WIFI, up to 10 devices can connect to UNI at the same time. So, no need to waste time on wires and complicated connections!
