Tech literacy is to modern man what hunting was to our ancient forebears. How we transfer that skill appropriately to the next generation is the difficult question. Enter: Kano.
Kano is a build-your-own, code-your-own, colour-your-own computer designed for ease of access.
Showing its stuff off at this year’s London Technology Week, the Raspberry Pi-powered kit has taken a leaf out of Lego’s book and lets kids put together their PC from the ground up.
The team behind Kano say the youngest person they’ve had build a computer so far was just six, whilst the oldest was 81. Christmas shopping might be a bit easier this year.
Once you’ve connected up the motherboard and speakers, you choose a coloured case and start coding. Kano promises game design aplenty with the Pi hardware and home-grown OS – a boon to the next generation of code kiddies.
The Kano is ready for pre-order now from their website, with the device setting you back about £95.
