OLPC - One Laptop per Child

I'm very inspired by the OLPC project. In 2002, an MIT professor was inspired to provide educational computers to children living in developing nations.

It's so great to see how technology is rapidly changing and allowing researchers to develop a laptop that may reach the children living in developing nations. For that matter, the OLPC may also revolutionize the lives of underprivileged children living in industrialized countries.

The newest design (XO-2) incorporates a smaller design with two touch screens. Plus, it should be less expensive to manufacture. Amazing!
