Masi Oka, a.k.a. Hiro Nakamura from Heroes, has been named the Global Ambassador for One Laptop per Child (OLPC), a non-profit organization set up to create what’s now widely known as the “$100 Laptop” for children of the developing world.

The Brown-educated former whiz kid, who worked as a software developer for George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic in his previous life, will be appearing in TV and online spots to “promote the importance of empowering children with learning tools and Internet connectivity.” No word yet on whether or not Oka will use his superpower to go back in time and prevent the cost of OLPC from hitting the $200 mark, however.
