A modular computer for kids lands on Indiegogo
We have been hearing a lot about modular devices from watches to phones, and now computers. For those unfamiliar with modular devices, they aim at being basically an upgradable device. Rather than using a device for a year or two than buying a new one, you will instead just buy upgradable parts.
Today, we are talking about the Infinity modular laptop by One Education. It combines a laptop and a tablet in one, and is designed for kids. The main thing that sets it apart from other devices is its modular capabilities. You will be able to replace the CPU, camera, battery, and more. It also runs Android, but they are working on a full Linux desktop experience too. This is great for being future proof and keeping upfront cost down.
The base model will come with an 8.9-inch screen, 1.4 GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage with a microSD card slot, and cameras on the back and front. One Education plans on making new modules like faster hardware, Windows 10 support, better cameras, and stronger Gorilla Glass screens.
If you are interested in picking one of these up, head over to One Education’s Indiegogo page. They are trying to raise $ 50,000 with early bird prices of $ 250 each, or if you are a school or large organization, you can buy a 10-pack for $ 2,390. They are expected to ship the Infinity next September.
