Creating more computers may not be a “green” undertaking, but enabling the world’s poor to have access to modern technology certainly is. MIT has been working for some time on the holy grail of leapfrog technology – the “$100 Laptop” – a laptop computer that can be charged by turning a crank and that can be bought in bulk by governments for less than $100 a piece.
