First Working Prototype of $100 Wind-Up Laptop Demo’d

The first working prototype of the Linux wind-up laptop at the center of the One Laptop Per Child Project has been demonstrated at the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange What’s Next Forum by Nicholas Negroponte running a cut-down version of Fedora Linux in glowing orange (at least it’s no longer shocking green).

eweek has a good report with pictures about how it stole the show.
