The Children's Machine (AKA the $100 laptop) and the OLPC initiative - Zvi Devir


One Laptop per Child (OLPC) is a non-profit organization dedicated for the development and construction of the Children's Machine, commonly known as the $100 laptop. The Children's Machine is an inexpensive laptop computer that will be distributed to children, especially in developing countries, to provide them with access to knowledge and modern forms of education.

In this talk, the OLPC project and the Children's Machine will be presented. I'll talk about the concepts of the project, and discuss some of the hardware and software considerations. The presentation will be given with a XO-B2 machine.
