To make more tangible some of the lab's work, several commercially available products from spinoff companies and sponsors will be demonstrated including the Ambient Orb, Clocky, LEGO Mindstorms, Scratch Sensor Board, Hyperscore, and E-ink.
We'll also bring back the raffle with at least one XOView Camera Viewfinder as a prize. Then we'll cover the news on OLPC's softwareUpdate.1 for the XO laptop and help install it for the brave. Much meshing should ensue.
Last but not least, expect a hot debate on Windows XP on the XO lead by Wayan Vota.
