The world’s cheapest computer, the Sakshat, which translates as “before your eyes”, is being developed in India. It’s supposed to cost 1000 Rupees (16 Euros) initially and to come down to 500 Rupees (8 Euros) through mass production. It’s a joint project of the Vellore Institute of Technology, the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, the Indian Institute of Technology in Madras and the state-controlled Semiconductor Complex, so time will tell if they can meet their launch date in 6 months. The prototype laptop has 2Gb of RAM and wireless connectivity. This machine will be a lot cheaper than the “$100 laptop”, the XO designed by scientists at MIT, which is having difficulties generating sales. (Guardian)
