Beekee Box

The stand-alone device for collaboration and training that goes everywhere

On a field trip? Not sure if you'll have internet where you go?



The Beekee Box is a portable learning platform that works without internet. Turns on the box to create a local wireless network and let the learners connect to it using their own devices to retrieve documents, collaborate in real time and follow complete training courses.

Bee everywhere

Thanks to its battery and small size, you can go off-road for several hours and withstand power cuts.

Bee secure

The data exchanged on Beekee Box is secured and physically stored on the box, generating an atmosphere of trust among learners.

Bee open

Beekee Box runs on Open software, allowing you to build or repair your own box. It is printed using recyclable plastic with 3D printers.
