“We first removed the hood and seat part (they are detachable as part of the rickshaw’s design) as these were impractical for our use. This left us with a flat platform on the back of a sturdy three-wheeled machine.

This formed a table suitable for putting a laptop on. We then constructed a wooden frame that held the speakers, armchair and table in place and also provided us with support for a canopy to protect the ‘internaut’ and laptop screen from the Sun’s rays.”
