The Kano Computer Kit is a computer anyone can make, like Lego. Launched through Kickstarter in 2013 , the kit has won awards from Family Choice, The Design Museum and Cannes Lions, and is being used in over 150,000 homes and 1000 schools and code clubs worldwide. It empowers its users to be creative with technology and not just consume it.

The Computer Kit box includes the Computer Kit (2017 edition), Kano OS, a range of great creative applications and 150+ hours of tutorials, challenges and creative coding projects. With simple steps and a storybook, you build your own real computer and bring it to life. Then you learn how to create art, apps, music and games with code.

It is powered by a powerful Raspberry Pi 3 and comes bundled with it’s own storybook that teaches you how to bring it to life. It also includes a keyboard, speaker, all needed cables and an SD card with Kano OS 3.8, the last version of the Kano Operating system.

The Computer Kit is in education programs worldwide, trusted by hundreds of thousands of customers and provides access to the Kano World community where users can share their creations and see what others are making.
