Photos: Kid-friendly tech at BETT

Forget pencils and paper, today's kids have much more interesting learning tools in their classrooms: 3D projectors, fingerprint scanners, ruggedised notebooks, Lego-based robots and more.

All this was on show at the BETT educational technology show at Olympia in London.

Stand after stand displayed the all-important back-end tech as well as tried-and-tested school-friendly gadgets like netbooks and interactive whiteboards, but there was plenty of room at the massive show for some more unique - and brightly coloured - devices too.

IT PRO uncovered the new USB-based NComputing system, 3D projectors, do-it-yourself robots and more. Click through the photo gallery for pictures and details.
