The world's poorest children could soon have a tablet of their very own, thanks to One Laptop Per Child (OLPC), the organisation which aims to bring low-cost computing to the developing world.
The device is designed for outdoor use with a rugged green rubber case and can be powered by a hand-crank, built-in solar panel, or regular power adaptor. Six minutes of cranking should produce two watts of power, allowing the low-energy tablet to run for an hour. Some models will also be equipped with a Pixel Qi screen, which provides a low-power, e-ink style display that can easily be viewed in bright sunlight.
