The whole world is turning their faces towards the almighty tablet and starting to ignore personal computers; the new Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet is so powerful that it can even replace your laptop. But there is a new product that can help change that: the new Kano computer kit lets children built their own computer and even teaches them a thing or two about programming.
Kano Computer Kit
Kano is a company that launched a simple product yesterday: the Kano computer kit is aimed at children between the ages of 6 and 14. It is a kit that allows kids to build their own personal computers, by providing them with a keyboard, a tiny speakers and parts that snap together to make a small personal computer.
The Kano computer kit sells for $150 and comes without a monitor (you can use the computer with any monitor you have lying around the house or you can even connect it to your TV). Once it’s built, children can learn how to code and make simple modifications to games such as Minecraft and Pong. Once you learn the ropes, you can even create your own app from scratch!
You can surf the web, watch videos and stream music; check your email and run productivity suites. It’s a nice and nifty computer for a child that is just starting out in using technology. It’s also a great way to get kids to be excited about programming and technology.
The Kano computer kit’s booklets are brilliantly done and will help the child not only understand how the computer is built, but also have fun with it!
