Founded by Nicholas Negroponte, One Laptop Per Child aims to provide each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop. With access to this type of tool, children are engaged in their own education, and learn, share, and create together. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future.
The interface, named Sugar, uses an abstracted spatial navigation metaphor, an extension of the familiar desktop metaphor, for intuitive navigation that makes the most of the laptop’s networking capabilities. Children can move through 4 levels of view − Home, Friends, Neighborhood, and Activity.
