Submission + - Tablet prototype needs no external power supply | (

timothy writes: I'd like to see a computer with no need for an external power supply as an e-book reader, a general knock-about PDA, a phone — all kinds of things. But there's a certain heart-strings appeal to such a computer intended as an educational tool for precisely those kind of places where basic infrastructure (like the provision of electricity) is a stumbling block. Perhaps built-in solar makes more sense, more places, than the hand-cranked power that the OLPC project ended up dropping from their laptops-for-kids program.
