3rd generation One Laptop Per Child

Twice as thin as an iPhone, semi-flexible 8.5″ by 11″ touchscreen, wireless induction charging and energy consumption under one watt and costing $75. The third generation One Laptop Per Child is still in conceptual stage and is being designed by Yves Behar. The expected release date is 2012 and only time will tell if it warrants the hype. For more on the XO-3 click here (optimistic) or here (pessimistic).

“I wanted to bring the One Laptop Per Child identity to life in this new form,” says Yves Behar, founder of FuseProject, which designed the both the original and the XO-3. “That meant taking the visual complexity away, bringing tactility and friendliness, touch and color.”
