This is the most important thing people are looking for: reliability. Not speed, not MIPS, not Mhz... a reliable system. Something you turn on, and never need to look at again.
This is what this project focusses on: a reliable system for use in very harsh conditions like the desert.
When supplied with WLan, the EFIKA could allow for even the most remote and isolated places in Algeria to become part of the Digital Revolution happening there now. Maybe there is no connection to the internet, but this little system could allow for a company to store data in these places, while later automatically sink with the central database... which will hopefully run on Power as well.
