$100 laptops open the door for highly interactive public meetings

What will be the next public participation technology? Here's one possibility… wireless laptops with electronic ink capability (and built in hand generators to boot!). All packaged to cost less than today's keypad polling devices. Way cool!

Too bad they're not for sale, but I'm sure others will follow.
