The XO Tablet, designed by Yves Behar and FuseProject specifically as a learning tool for children, goes on sale at Walmart this week for $150. If an inordinate amount of attention is being paid to the unveiling of this device, it’s because this is the fourth iteration of a low-cost tablet conceived by the One Laptop Per Child project, an initiative originally aimed at the developing world—and perhaps the first version that has lasting power.

Of the 7-inch touchscreen tablet, Behar says, “The new user interface is colorful and easy to use, while the protective rubber exterior features a carrying loop similar to the original XO finger hooks. What is unique about this version is how we crafted the user interface and the industrial design simultaneously. We wanted to make sure that together they would deliver a cohesive experience while stimulating discovery and offering a few surprises.”
