$25 Computer from the Raspberry Pi Foundation

I came across an interesting story about a $25 computer created by David Braben. The device has a HDMI connection at one end to allow it to be connected to a TV and a USB connection to plug in a USB keyboard/mouse. I visited Braben's Raspberry Pi Foundation and uploaded the image of this device so that you can see what it looks like. According to the Foundation's website, the plan is to develop, manufacture, and distribute the ultra-low cost device for use in teaching computer programming to children. Braeben expects to have this technology available for sale in about a year's time.

Imagine the kind of impact this device can have on children and education. What are your thoughts on this?
