I always thought that the OLPC project was a wonderful idea. I don’t know what I would be like today without technology in my life as a youth. I can’t even imagine what it would be like for a kid to have almost no access to technology of any sort. Sure, the project didn’t quite keep things under $100, but still,I think they did a great job. But what about version 2.0?
Here are some shots of what the team is working towards for the second iteration of the device. It really seems too good to be true. First, you’ve got two screens, both of which are touchscreens, then the fact that it will only consume a mere 1 watt of power. That seems a bit far-fetched, but its the $75 price tag that really gets me. We’ll check back in 2010 and see how this thing looks.
