We are so excited to announce our new friendship with OLPC- One Laptop Per Child project. Lauren Klein came in to the labs and shared the experience of the OLPC laptop with us. This specially designed laptop is meant to provide children all around the world the opportunity to explore and learn and grow. It costs only $100, while the education they receive is invaluable. We're so lucky to be asked to create a special How To for making a laptop case for these computers. One that can be translated easily into different languages, understood by children between 9 and 13 years old, and also made by them! So heres the deal. I've made some prototypes. I had the opportunity to play with the laptop a bit, took some measurements, and weighed it. The dimensions are: 242 mm X 228 mm X 30 mm. It weighs less than 1.5 kg. The rest of the specifications can be found here.
I made some small scale prototypes and 2 full scale. You can learn how to make one of them from this how to. And if you want to get more involved, you can also help us come up with other options for the bag!
