Clockwork Computing...

Sometimes the old technologies have their uses. The Telegraph has this interesting story about the development of a clockwork powered laptop for some of the poorer countries of the world.
The British inventor whose clockwork radios brought the poorest and most remote parts of the world into the broadcasting age has been asked to help bring them computers.
Trevor Bayliss has flown to America to help design and build a wind up generator for a new laptop computer that is hoped will bring the internet to even the most impoverished and far flung parts of the third world
