The OLPC Display: Low Power, Sunlight Readable LCD

“The biggest technology roadblock to building the USD 100 laptop championed by Nicholas Negroponte, founder and chairman of the One Laptop per Child organization, is close to resolution. That roadblock has been developing a display that is rugged, inexpensive and readable in a wide variety of conditions from low light to bright sunlight.” A Google Summer of Code project started the porting of GTK+ to this technology, with Manu Cornet especially testing to determine the tweaking necessary to usual GUI themes, for the goals of performance and display clarity.
