Berlin-based designer Mareike Gast has created Refugee Radio, a radio for better communication in refugee camps, powered by the radiowaves, therefore energy-independent.
She designed two versions: a complete radio for emergencies and a diy-kit for long-term camps. These are basic radios, but they leave space for personal adaptation. The radio diy-kit would be handed out refugee camp. The packaging serves as a manual. The technology is extremely simple and cheap, each recipient is involved in the making of the radio and thereby creates a very personal device.
