On the ground: $100 laptop for the developing world

A while ago, the MIT introduced a concept to build a $100 laptop which could be distributed to millions of children in developing nations. The aim of the project is to allow kids that could normally not afford a laptop to get one and use in their country.

The laptop was introduced today at the UN, and features a 500MHz processor, networking capabilities, and can be hand cranked to restore battery power, in the case there is no available electricity.
