Bubbles & Cheap Laptops

Wow! Kids are sure getting spoiled these days. First we invent all these high tech video game systems that cost you an arm and a leg, now they have invented COLORED BUBBLES!!! This guy was so obsessed with making color bubbles that he spent 11 years trying to figure out how to do it. Talk about dedication ... or maybe he just wasn't very bright. But in any case, all the more credit to him. Now ... let's see how I can save enough money to get my very own PS3.

This is about a week old, but some kind hearted folks at MIT have invented the world's first $100 laptop. The mission behind it is the following:

The MIT Media Lab has launched a new research initiative to develop a $100 laptop—a technology that could revolutionize how we educate the world's children. To achieve this goal, a new, non-profit association, One Laptop per Child (OLPC), has been created. The initiative was first announced by Nicholas Negroponte, Lab chairman and co-founder, at the World Economic Forum at Davos, Switzerland in January 2005.

So basically, laptops for all the kids in third world countries. A grand idea, huh? If you didn't noticed, you can see all the happy poor kids on the laptops monitor. And don't forget that big yellow hand crank on the right, one minute of cranking = ten minutes of power time. Just think about how much more healthy kids around the world will get when they have to take breaks between playing their video games.

    All I have to say is that I am sort of partial to that old bubble recipe they talk about in the article where every bubble left bright, horrible spots on everything that could be washed out. That would be awesome! top
