Documentary about OLPC Designer Yves Behar

SBS television recently screened a documentary about Yves Behar, the person behind the distinctive industrial design of the OLPC XO laptop. It’s a fascinating insight into the mind and influences behind one of the most influential designers around. The documentary was originally aired in November 2008, so it is a little dated. For example, Yves talks about the “XOXO” XO-2, which has since been replaced with the XO-3. Nevertheless, it is well worth watching.
You can view the full version at the SBS Web site. The section on OLPC starts at 14:48.

Anonymous says: This is to the one child per laptop organisation. I have been listening to your advertisements on television about giving children laptops. However, I think that what you are saying about Africa being a continent that one would rather forget is very unconcious. I was born and grew up in Africa and I must say that with all its imperfections-it is home for me and there is no way I would rather forget it. I think that you should mind the language used because many Africans are actaully proud to be Africans. March 30, 2011 at 12 am
