Australia To Trial OLPC

The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project aims to put low-cost laptops into the hands of impoverished children in the developing world, but work is already underway to trial them among indigenous populations in Australia.

The simple laptop, currently being built for around $US150 each, is the brainchild of MIT Media Lab and Nicholas Negroponte, who billed it as being revolutionary for children's education.
