The MIT Media Lab is launching a new research initiative to develop a $100
laptop-a technology that could revolutionize how we educate the world's
children. The idea was announced by Nicholas Negroponte, Lab chairman and
co-founder, at the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland.
Energy efficient hardware, lean operating system and intended for the
education market. This project could have been made for RISCOS and ARM -
but it wasn't.
