Next Step For OLPC, Pixel Qi

Pixel Qi, a spin off from OLPC is set to create a $75 laptop, according to company website. I am one of the proud owners of OLPC but yet to take out of packing properly, I have been busy ever since I received the package. At least I am happy that there is some child somewhere. The Give one get one program is something that you can pursue untill Pixel Qi come our way. The New device(s) said to be carrying specialties including:

  • Extreme low-cost
  • Extreme low-power
  • Mass producible new display technologies
  • Outdoor use, sunlight readability and robustness
All these efforts are being lead by Dr. Mary Lou Jepsen was previously the founding CTO of One Laptop Per Child (OLPC). Notably Mary Lou invented the laptop's sunlight-readable display technology and co-invented its ultra-low-power management system. Critically, she transformed these inventions into ready-to-ship hardware, integrated into the XO laptop.
