Following on from last week’s disputed images this week One Education in Australia have now officially unveiled the XO-Infinity modular laptop which has been designed to be easily upgradable with each component created to be replaceable.
To upgrade the XO-Infinity modular laptop no special tools are required and its design has been built for children as young as 4 to be able to assemble say its creators, One Education.
At the current time the XO-Infinity modular laptop is still in its prototype stages of development and is expected to start shipping sometime during 2016.
Unfortunately at the present time no indication as to how much the modular laptop will cost has been announced as yet by its creators. But the system will be capable of running a variety of different operating systems including Windows, Linux and Android.
The hardware can then be tailored to your exact requirements allowing you to use ARM-based chip and Android-based software for younger children, upgrading to a touchscreen Windows or Linux system complete with keyboard as they get a little older.
A computer capable of morphing and changing as rapidly as a child’s needs. A computer designed for an entire childhood:
– A lifespan of 10 years, not obsolete in 2
– Robust enough to survive the classroom and the playground
– Low cost that can be spread over time
– Access to online communities of practice, to apps that aid all styles of learning and activities that encourage and reward student engagement
