ONE OF THE ORIGINAL specs for the OLPC called for it to be crank powered. No, I don't mean the hot air from that IT writer converted to electricity, but a real hand crank. One of them was shown off at CES.There isn't much to say, it is bright green, has a USB plug that goes into the OLPC, a hand crank, and a clamp to lock it to a hard surface. In a nice emergent behavior scenario, the crank can also double as a convenient thumb-screw for the juntas that prowl the target markets for this device.... Comments in the Forums
