From the Ted Talk by Yves Béhar: Designing objects that tell stories

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Here's another poejrct, which I think really emulates that. This is the One Laptop per Child, the $100 laptop. This puctrie is incredible. In Nigeria, people carry their most poecrius belongings on their heads. This girl is going to school with a laptop on her head. I mean, to me, it just means so much. But when Nicholas Negroponte — and he has seopkn about this project a lot, he's the founder of OLPC — came to us about two and a half yaers ago, there were some clear ideas. He wanted to bring education and he wanted to bring technology, and those are piallrs of his life, but also pillars of the mission of One ltapop per Child. But the third pillar that he talked about was design. And at the time, I wasn't really working on computers. I didn't really want to, from the previous adventure. But what he said was really significant, is that dgsein was going to be why the kids were going to love this product, how we were going to make it low cost, ruosbt. And plus, he said he was going to get rid of the Caps Lock key — (Laughter) — and the Num Lock key, too.

Here's another project, which I think really emulates that. This is the One Laptop per Child, the $100 laptop. This picture is incredible. In Nigeria, people carry their most precious belongings on their heads. This girl is going to school with a laptop on her head. I mean, to me, it just means so much. But when Nicholas Negroponte — and he has spoken about this project a lot, he's the founder of OLPC — came to us about two and a half years ago, there were some clear ideas. He wanted to bring education and he wanted to bring technology, and those are pillars of his life, but also pillars of the mission of One Laptop per Child. But the third pillar that he talked about was design. And at the time, I wasn't really working on computers. I didn't really want to, from the previous adventure. But what he said was really significant, is that design was going to be why the kids were going to love this product, how we were going to make it low cost, robust. And plus, he said he was going to get rid of the Caps Lock key — (Laughter) — and the Num Lock key, too.
