XO-1 Laptop Now Part of MoMA Collection

If you’re looking for something to do next time you’re in NYC, you could stop by MoMA and check out the gadgets.

New York’s Museum of Modern Art added a new object to its collection on Saturday. The XO-1 laptop, originally released in 2005, is now part of the permanent collection. It’s being recognized for both the hardware and software design.

While this might seem a little odd, it’s not the first computer to be added to the collection. The original Macintosh is also there, long with the iPod and other gadgets.
