Paper laptop interfaces designed by 7-9 year-olds.  NOV 19 2007

Paper laptop interfaces designed by 7-9 year-olds.

The children started making these laptops last year and dubbed themselves "the laptop club." This was truly an innovation of kid culture without adult coaching. The children were in second and third grade last year, and are continuing to create and play with new designs this year. [...] All of the kids played with their laptops so much that many of the laptops have been worn out or lost.

The desires and preoccupations of the kids come through quite clearly in these drawings. Reminds me of the letters to Santa we wrote in grade school.
