The Librarybox

LibraryBox v2.0 is a combination of a router (a variety of hardware will work), USB drive, and software that, when combined, give you a small, low powered webserver. The webserver acts like a captive portal, and delivers files that are stored on the USB drive. To use LibraryBox, you simply connect to the wifi SSID “LibraryBox” and launch a browser. Attempting to visit any webpage will push you to the LibraryBox homepage on the device, which has information about the project, and links on the menu for downloads. You can browse the contents of the Shared folder, and download any files you’d like. The device you are using does have to be able to understand the download (for instance, downloading an EPUB ebook to a Kindle won’t really work).

The Lightstream Pocket

Power on the LightStream Pocket and any nearby cell phone can connect to the WiFi hotspot and browse through the “netflix-like” user interface to select and download or stream the Christian media stored on the device. Put a microSD card in the microSD slot, and the LightStream Pocket will quickly copy the media over to the card and optionally lock it if you don’t want the media to ever be removed or deleted. Finally, the LightStream Pocket scans for bluetooth-enabled devices and automatically “pushes” the Christian media files to them. These 3 distribution methods make the LightStream an ideal solution to quickly and efficiently get Bibles and other Christian media to the people you’re trying to reach.
