Kano, the computer kit for programmer’s kids

10.11.2014 | |

Kano has made a kit, that gives kids (and adults) components to build their own computer. The kit is comprised of a single Raspberry Pi board, a wireless keyboard, a dongle, some cables and a memory card that comes with the Kano operating system.

The idea is that kids will take these components and construct their own computer that they attach to a monitor. Storybooks will guide them through the process, also teaching them how to code within the Kano OS. They’ll be able to make a wireless server, reprogram Minecraft to build custom worlds, create music and even just word-process.
