Hi List,
We are working on an automated digital microscope with smart blood collection cartridges via fingerprick and image analysis software to diagnose malaria vs. bacterial vs. viral infections. We need a computation platform and look at the XO (and later generations) with great interest.

I am new on the list and have a couple of questions:

Are there already other microscope add-ons developed?
How is the health application part of OLPC organized?
Are there any health-related projects deployed in the field  yet or coming up soon?
