Just when we think design mastermind and Inhabitat favorite Yves Béhar [2] couldn’t possibly come up with a more useful, world-bettering product, he does. Continuing along the vein of his XO $100 laptop for kids in developing nations [3] and an even more awesome $75 tablet version [4], Béhar is now collaborating with the Mexican government to offer kids customizable corrective eyeglasses [1] that can drastically alter their learning experience. Not only are they way cooler looking than your average glasses – they’re going to be offered for free!
