A computer in every pot
This week sees the realization of Mr Negroponte’s five-year dream. After field testing in Nigeria and Brazil, the OLPC project’s first model, a rugged little green laptop called the XO that can run on batteries, solar power, a miniature windmill or hand- or foot-crank, goes into mass production. Schoolchildren in developing countries will start receiving the remarkable computer from October onwards.http://www.sdnp.undp.org/perl/news/articles.pl?id=9570&do=gpageAsif
