Low-tech anti-surveillance tool for the OLPC XO-1






After reading several articles about the alleged spying that was enabled by a Pennsylvania school district via its one-to-one MacBook, and seeing discussion on a variety of mailing lists, I've decided to implement my own zero-cost, no-hassle solution to the problem for the OLPC XO-1's camera.

This should be able to be adopted in deployments everywhere, by anyone with a piece of paper, or anything else they can slide through the plastic faceplate.

Just say no to fancy addons and factory-added "shutters" or "covers", make your own!
