Was very impressed when I saw how far the OLPC project had come, this demonstration of the user interface on this Linux based laptops is simple and intuitive and a world apart from the bare Linux interfaces most of us are used to. You can also learn about the history and some of the issues faced by the project on Wikipedia, as well as view official information at the OLPC Homepage. The laptops are will cost $100, and a represent an opportunity to revolutionise how we teach the worlds children – with an emphasis on developing nations where access to technology is limited for under privileged children.
Oh and did I mention that they are wind-up powered??
