One Lap Top Per Child Project

Read more about the project here (from the site:)

“”It’s an education project, not a laptop project.”— Nicholas Negroponte

Our goal: To provide children around the world with new opportunities to explore, experiment and express themselves.”

I first heard of this project a few years ago at the Ars Electronica conference in Linz, Austria.

I was glad to hear that production of these devices is under way in China.

This little computer is solar and or foot powered. It is the size of a text book and very durable.

It utilizes an open source OS and has an inbuilt microphone, camera.

It is a pretty amazing little device.

  1. And for a short time you can buy one and get one free. That is, you buy one for a child and you get sent a second one for you or your family. US only, unfortunately. See xogiving.com

    How soon can I buy one and get another to give free
    to a child? I live here in San Diego County. Cost plus shipping charges.
    I just watched an episode about it on 60 minutes tonight.
    Thanks ,
