Mel Chua, Andrea Lai, Nikki Lee, and Greg Marra have a light parody of one of my favorite causes, the OLPC initiative. They’ve imagined what might arise if one replaced the laptop with a dinosaur. This looks like a lot more fun than Barney, to me.

OVPC is about to revolutionize the existing concept of a human-dinosaur interaction.
