Kano lets kids build their own simple computer, and create apps for it. Here’s how.
Anyone can build a computer. That’s the mission statement of Kano, which is a kit for kids that teaches the basics of computers and a little bit of coding.
You might have heard of Kano from their successful Kickstarter campaign last year. They raised 1.5 million dollars to produce these boxes that have everything you need to build a simple computer, except a screen.
The kit comes with a Raspberry Pi 2 board, a wireless keyboard, Micro SD card, a Wi-Fi USB dongle, HMDI cable, power plug, a case, a DIY speaker, and some options for customizing your case.
