Re: FYI -- One Laptop per Child (OLPC) Opportunity



I forgot to mention, that there are already projects using the sound
interface as a measurement device with the ability to even sample DC
voltages with a fairly linear range.
This would make indeed a nice modem for various purposes, packet radio,
aprs, psk, etc...   in addition to the build-in WLAN intrerface...

As Tom said, there would be a fantastic opportunity if Ham Radio in
general jumps on it and provides tools to the Educational community and
for the Kids...

Apart from this, since the OPLC has a very low power consumption, it
would also be a good replacement for some of the PC's in your radio
shack..   Antenna controller, Satellite tracking, etc...
