“”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.
