Abstract: After previously reading a post about children and the interactions they will have in the future with technologies we have today I thought this article really connected with those ideas. From companies like Lexibook, kurio and meep, alongside with toys r us and their “tabeo”, a new take on an existing product comes to toy stores with a lively competetive price tag of only $149. These 7 inch google android powered tablets were created with the 6-12 yr old target demographic in mind. And show another way we are integrating children to modern technology from a very young age.
