We unbox the Kano DIY computer for kids [Video]

The Kano DIY mini-computer kit proved to be a popular product since its launch. The device was created to show kids how to put together a mini PC, what components are involved in the process, and how to code.

The overall system is relatively simplistic in design. It’s built on a Raspberry Pi, comes with the necessary pieces to house the internal components, a WiFi dongle, wireless keyboard with trackpad, and some booklets to get you started. The operating system is build in Linux and features a range of programs for kids, such as a terminal-based text story and a modified version of Minecraft.

Kano appeared on Kickstarter in 2014 and managed to raise US$1.5-million from over 13 000 backers. It is available locally from stores such as Takealot and the Kano South Africa website.
