Disk images that can be flashed onto the storage cards will be created as image files. They are a basic starting point that local deployments can add to once they received the boxes.

We will later allow customization of such lists, and add the ability to donate more modules for this use.


A bookshelf of what all Wikipedia's medical content at the end of 2013 would look like if printed in volumns the size of the Encyclopedia Britannica. This does not include pictures.

The Internet-in-a-Box comes preloaded with Wikimedia content including various collections packaged to be read with Kiwix, such as:

  • (CC BY SA) All of WP in specific languages
  • (CC BY SA) Specific topic area collections
  • (CC BY SA) Offline medical apps (apks) that can be downloaded and installed on the persons cell phone

Openly licensed collections[edit]

Not openly licensed[edit]


Based on current deployments and contributors, a few different images are being planned, each with its own primary focus language:

1st release
2nd release
