Comment(by cjl):

 An interesting idea, but does the technology to do this even exist?  A
 display screen that is both touch sensitive and provides haptic feedback?
 Even if it could be done, it would almost certainly be cost prohibitive
 for a general production OLPC laptop.  I'm entirely in favor of
 engineering in the highest feasible levels of accessibility, but it sounds
 like someone else needs to invent this technology before OLPC could even
 consider it.
