This is a Project. Its medium is helmet: abs plastic.

The Internet Village Motoman was launched for fifteen schools, telemedicine clinics, and the governor’s office in Ratanakiri, a remote province of Cambodia. Telemedicine clinics in remote areas give patients access to physicians in Boston, Massachusetts. A nurse visits each village to examine and photograph patients, and then transmits the information using a solar-powered computer by satellite to physicians in Boston. Within hours, the physicians respond with medical opinions and treatment recommendations.
