5-pen computer

with 17 comments

From Ton’s Intradependent Thoughts

The 5-pen computer by NEC:

One pen with the CPU, one with projecting a virtual keyboard, one projecting the output, one with a camera, and one for communications. This with a base containing a battery charger and a mass storage device. Prototype will be around 30k$, or 24kE. Cool!

Realisation on the CPU pen and the Base is open at the moment, but the display, communication, keyboard and camera pen are either near completion, or almost near completion. As to the keyboard, projecting a virtual keyboard is already available on the market. The remaining two pens don’t sound as the most difficult, so I think this will see the light of day relatively soon.

Learning Material Repositories – Rafts or Battleships?

Learning Material Repositories – Rafts or Battleships?Part 1 and Part 2 from Auricle

No more resources ‘locked-in’ to e-learning environments, tools, or multimedia applications. I want my educational applications populated from a ‘proper’ learning object repository … don’t I? That was the mission, but here’s the findings and thinking so far.

if learning object repositories are to have an impact on e-learning then I’ve proposed that the mechanisms by which they communicate with each other and with the end-users needs to be easy to implement. I’ve attempted to highlight RSS as one easy to implement syndication technology which can be used to enrich and populate a learning environment.
