The Virtual Laptop for Kids

Kevin Roebuck
Director, Digital Experience

Here's kind of cool new way to think about net access for kids. WiHood has a "virtual
laptop" that is loaded on a USB bracelet and worn on your wrist,
carried in a pocket or in a school bag. They are inserted into any internet connected PC launching the WiHood
virtual laptop service (running on a Solaris datacenter) that provides each child with their own personal
virtual desktop. WiHood's web filtering service is integrated into the
WiHood desktop that provides games and office applications, all while
protecting children online. WiHood was founded to bridge the
digital-divide amongst children while protecting them online using Web
2.0 thinking (web services and cloud computing technologies).
