One Laptop Per Child

Fuseproject has done it again, working with One Lap Top Per Child they have created a laptop that brings education through the power of technology. It's a great program and the design is simple, affordable to produce and pretty cute, and the solar cover option can house a solar panel combined with internal batteries for outdoor or indoor charging. Sweet!
“With more than 2.4 million children in 25 countries received the original XO Laptop, and these kids have been our inspiration to create the next generation of this educational tool. One Laptop Per Child is a technology story about how to provide low-­‐cost educational tools to millions of children. For those children, and for us, it is also a creative story about how to design specifically for young students. Every decision made by the OLPC engineering team and the design team at fuse project has been about adapting technology to children’s needs at a cost that makes the tablet affordable for developing countries.”
