1.0 Laptop / Child

The One Laptop Per Child project has built the first few prototypes of their final model. You can see pictures of the OLPC team playing with their creation at the OLPC Wiki. I envy these guys: they're working on an idea that's poised to change the world. At first I thought they got rid of the hand crank that their original design had (still visible in their gallery) but it turns out they just moved it to the AC adapter, which makes sense. No power outlet needed => awesome. Check out the hardware specs page... the processor uses 1 watt and system load is 3 watts with a capacity of 7 hours.
