Rickshaws: Pedal Powered Bookmobiles

Anonymous Patron writes "Slashdot pointed the way to An AP Article on some nifty brightly painted pedal-carts accompanied by a computer instructor who gives classes to young and old, students and teachers alike. The bicycle cart is the center of a project called "Infothela," or info-cart. It aims to use technology to improve education, health care and access to agricultural information in India's villages, where most of the country's 1.06 billion people live.

There's an older article at The Times Of India and more on the project Here, which includes a diagram of the nifty looking bikes."
