Talk about how to use and get the most out of Activities for the XO.

Internet Surfing Capabilities

Postby Howard » Tue Nov 18, 2008 8:55 am

I am considering this for my 4-year old for her birthday. She loves to play internet-based games on

http://www.noggin.com/games/
http://atv.disney.go.com/playhouse/index.html
and
http://pbskids.org/games/

Can the OLPC play these kinds of games? Will there be some sort of substantive lag or will they look and play fine?

Thank you
Howard

The XO may not be the right platform for these games...see the notes and discussion at:

On the other hand, the XO can be a great learning tool for other kid actvities!

Yes it can play the games, at least pbskids.org, I know about those
My 3 year old is constantly playing too. It is a little slow, let's face it this is not what it was meant for but it works.
And there is all kinds of other interesting activities for a little kid build for the XO.
Give it a try, it's worth it
