One Laptop per Child - OLPC
To provide children around the world with new opportunities to explore,

The OLPC Wiki -
The mission of the One Laptop per Child
association is to develop a low-cost laptop-the "XO
Laptop"-to revolutionize how we educate the world's children. Our goal is to
provide children around the world with new opportunities to explore,
experiment, and express themselves.
Measure - Lighted Graticule
Oscilloscopes traditionally light the graticule by illuminating its edges; the graticule material (typically acrylic plastic) "pipes" the light through itself. If the piped light hits a line scratched in the plastic's surface, the light bounces off the scratch and illuminates the line.
When doing experiments that involve measurements, such lines become almost mandatory. Indeed, I decided I had to breadboard one up (see the photo) in the course of designing a waveform generator. I wanted to make measurements of the extremes of voltage that an LM358A operational amplifier can output when operated from 5 volts. (It turned out to be roughly 0.5 to 3.1 volts just like the spec sheet and calculations indicated.)
