Rapid Response Computing
I have been working with SDSU VIZLAB and the MIT Fab Lab San Diego division we have been working on a communication method that is equivalent to the one laptop per child project. The One Laptop Per Child computer systems are no longer readily available in the United States of America we are developing a alternative system. Currently we have found an affordable laptop and are utilizing it by applying open source software for versatility along with the use ability needed for some who aren’t as tech savvy. So far we have established that we will be using the linux operating system along with basic communication applications and we may also be working towards extending the wifi range on the laptop for the communication that is necessary to apply in an emergency situation. Our main focus is to create a system which will be useful and helpful in a situation with limited infrastructure.
