A team of Americans and Kenyans has developed an Internet router made specially for Africa. They say it keeps the Internet available even in areas with undependable Internet service. The device is called Brck [pronounced Brick], it can plug into an electric source, but it is also battery powered.

Al Banda is an Internet blogger in Cameroon. He saw the device for the first time  last week at an Information Technology Conference in Berlin, Germany. Mr. Banda says Brck could solve a problem he has experienced.

The Kenya-based nonprofit technology company Ushahidi developed Brck after raising money through the crouse sourcing website Kickstarter. Ushahidi official Erik Hersman says the router is able to move among Internet networks.

Mr. Hersman says Brck will go into production as soon as the company raises $125,000. Ushahidi has collected about half that so far. The company plans to make up to 1,500 devices at first, mainly for Africa and India. Mr. Hersman expects each device to sell for about $100.
