Wow it looks great! I've not seen the final prototype of the 'windup' PCs before. Have they been released to the countries that are elligible to buy them?

Looks to be one mason jar diagonal :P So from a previous post, it looks like these things can be charged by Potenco's generators (yoyo generators :P) - so how much do these things draw?

The power draw in Ebook reader mode is supposed to be ~1 watt and browsing the web is something around 2 watts, of course the more programs open the more it has to think and therefore takes more go-juice.

Wow, that is amazing! I wish my computer only drew 2W (I think it averages around 60) :P
