Memory Stick Homework

September 13th, 2006 by Hugh

Kids in the South of France are going back to school this term with memory sticks that they will use to carry their homework back and forth. The sticks will also be pre-loaded with selected school texts. According to The Times:

Every September there is an outcry from parents as children stagger back to school under the load of new books. College, or junior secondary pupils, typically carry about 10kg (22lb) in their cartables (satchels). Primary children carry 4-6kg.

It’s a small step from a memory stick to a scanner pen.
