Humane Reader For Developing Countries Costs About $20

Getting computers into developing countries may not always be an easy task, as the cost is often a prohibitive factor. Now the folks behind the Humane Reader might have something on their hands, as it’s a small device that is capable of storing data that’s equivalent to about 5,000 books. Instead of bringing a device around with an integrated LCD display, the Humane Reader still needs the user to plug in a keyboard and television set, giving them access to a whole slew of information. The fact that it uses TVs as an output device should make adoption a lot easier, as TVs are more common in developing countries than computers. If everything goes according to plan, the Humane Reader could be sold for as little as about $20 per unit, as long as the company gets enough orders to mass produce it.
