Photo of a Speak & Spell in London, UK

Speak & Spell by Texas Instruments was a popular educational toy in the 1980s. It would say a word and then challenge you to spell it. One interesting aspect of its iconic design is that the keyboard is arranged alphabetically. I wonder whether that would be the case if it was designed today, in an era when children have access to computers and tablets from a young age? This photo was taken at an exhibition at the Barbican in London.
