   As I said on the project's page in a previous log, I wanted to use a part of the winnings to invest in manufacturing a small volume of Brian Box modules. My plan was to distribute these modules to some local families here in PNG and to help them in this way. The Brian Box module won the Power Harvesting Round @ the 2018 Hackaday Prize https://hackaday.com/2018/07/24/twenty-power-harvesting-projects-headed-to-the-hackaday-prize-finals/ 

   This means that I had to keep my promise and invest 40% of the winnings in creating 60 lucky prototypes that would find their owners in some of the remote villages of the PNG rain forest. 

   Some of these prototypes already left for the following villages (tribes): Kuni, Arop, Patep, Kamano and Nomane. I hope I will be able to show you some pictures soon.
