It looks like some folks are getting development versions of the $100 laptop, MAKE Flickr photo pool member Curiouslee is working on a music project, he writes “At the time of this photo, about 150 boards have been seeded out to developers. This one was running a version of Barry Vercoe’s Csound which will conduct any number of laptops each as a different orchestral instrument via WiFi on mesh network.”Link.

  1. I just wanted to add for clarity that I was just getting a demo of the laptop board and the music software. I’m not working on the laptop project right now.

    Walter Bender posted a weekly report shortly after my visit which described what I was seeing:

    Audio server: Barry Vercoe and Simon Schampijer have built such a network-transparent audio server from the CSOUND system that was the basis of Barry’s recent music demos the laptop. Barry and Simon’s networked music demos are now up and running at the OLPC office reception area.
