The first working prototype of the $100 Laptop was unveiled today at the Seven Countries Task Force Meeting. Here are some pics of the laptop. Looks like a those Disney TV/VCR combos.
The whole point of the project is to give children in developing countries a learning tool and a connection to the rest of the world. One of the more interesting aspects of the project is the fact that the small machines will create a peer-to-peer network right out of the box. How will it be used? No idea. But at least we know the laptops won't be used to surf MySpace all day.
