A lot of things have been obfuscated these days, in the sense that you can't get at them. There's so much between you and doing something interesting or creative that it gets in the way. "What they would do with it is they would be able to engage in a lot of things we're all consumers of but not creators of. In my day we had a subject called typing and that, to me, is what ICT has replaced. It's a fine set of skills, I'm not meaning to belittle it. but the ability to write letters, use PowerPoint, use Excel, is one set of skills. I'm talking about a completely different set of skills that actually ICT has ousted from schools. In the early days... we had computer science coming into schools, they've been largely supplanted by things like ICT. The number of computer science applicants to universities dropped in the early 200s by around 50 percent, which I think is a shocking indictment.
Aren't most monitors, or inexpensive ones still using VGA connections?
The appeal of this would be the ease of affordability in maybe nations other than the US that don't have alot of $ to spend towards technology and technological education but requiring and HDMI screen sort of defeats that purpose, and since the hardware is relatively simple I don't know if it could handle conversion through adapters or such.
Either way progress towards educating students and those eager to learn in developing countries is noble in its own right and this is as awesome product
Time to play some solitaire!!!... LOL
um... how do you connect keyboard, mice and ect... to it???
Exciting ! One can imagine the forces that will be marshaled against this project in the event it would seem to show any chance of succeeding - a nighttime stealth-chopper visit by the CIA and Bill/Bob Gates at the very least....
Most new monitors have HDMI. Also almost every TV sold in the past few years has HDMI.
I'm sure you could find something this would work on. :-P
HDMI isn't really an issue. In fact, it makes this device the most flexible. HDMI can be converted into any another video format with the right adapter.
