One Laptop Per Child XO Laptop


The nonprofit One Laptop per Child (OLPC), formed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology by Nicholas Negroponte, is dedicated to creating a revolutionary child-sized laptop that will bring learning, information and communication to children where education is needed most: in developing countries. Governments purchase the laptop directly, and distribute them to their schools. The OLPC laptop was designed to be robust, tactile, and expressive at the same time. It is an iconic machine that was designed for children and challenging conditions. As such, its design ensures that it is resilient, easily portable and energy efficient.

"From needs analysis to product execution, the XO laptop is a role model for design strategy."
