About five months ago, OLPC Project started a little experiment. They chose a village in Ethiopia where the literacy rate was nearly 0% and decided to drop off a bunch of Motorola Xooms there.The One Laptop Per Child project started as a way of delivering technology and resources to schools in countries with little or no education infrastructure, using inexpensive computers to improve traditional curricula. On the tablets, there was custom software that was meant to teach kids how to read. This experiment began earlier this year.Timeline of Experiment:1st Four Minutes - One kid had opened the box and had figured out how to turn on the Xoom.In 1st Five Days - The kids were using nearly 50 applications each every day.In Two Weeks - The kids were singing their ABC’s in English.Now its 5th Month - They hacked the Motorola Xooms so they could enable the camera, which had been disabled by OLPC.- See more at: http://thehackernews.com/2012/11/illiterate-ethiopian-kids-hack-motorola.html
