$100 laptop from MIT Media Labs

A $100 windup-powered laptop targeted at children in developing nations?

Children in developing nations? More like, everyone in the U.S. For $100, I’ll bet there would be masses of people around the globe lined up to get them.

Granted, it won’t have all the features of what we normally think of as a laptop, but it does look very interesting.

This reminds me of a story about how Ford envisioned manufacturing a car that the average worker could afford–before he even realized how he was going to do it. I like it. Set a price and some basic features and figure out how to do it, even though it may seem ridiculous.
