OLPCThe "One Laptop Per Child" program has been in the news since more than a year. Since today, first laptops are available to people in North America in a "Get one, give one" action: You pay $399.- and get two laptops, one for yourself and one is donated to a child in a developing country. – Hold on! Two 100 dollar laptops for $399.- ?? Well, I guess that’s just the basic laws of economy ;-)

Something for the coffee break: Rubik's cube

Eric | November 12, 2007

Rubik‚Äôs cubeI just rediscovered and revived an old assignment I did for my Computer Graphics class at the University of Kent four years ago. It’s a VRML implementation of Rubik’s Cube. As a special feature the cube holds photographs of some well-known models to make life more interesting. You have to download and install the Cosmo Player (for Windows; for other OS’s click here) to use VRML in your browser. Then check out the cube here. Have fun!
