The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) is an amazing project that aims to give every child in the world a laptop with a cost of just $100 a laptop and they also are windup so in countries where there is no or little electricity you can wind the OLPC up to get it working.

As we said this is an amazing project, but researchers in India are saying that they can make a laptop for $10 (now that would change a lot of children’s lives if made possible).

This is 10 times more computers and laptops than the OLPC; these could be made available to poor and underprivileged communities in third world nations and India.

Officials have said that they are considering two different design proposals from a researcher from the Indian Institute of Science and an engineering student from the Vellore Institute of Technology. Both of these designs are said to cost around $50 to make which that cost would be reduced to $10 with advances in distribution and manufacturing techniques. - Source: Product Reviews Net Via Times of India
