Ever built a PC by yourself? The experience can be somewhat harrowing for those who don’t have a clue what they’re doing. After all, figuring out what slots in where is only half the fun.
But while building a PC may be a) daunting and b) expensive, there’s a London-based team that’s set to make building a PC as fun as playing with Lego bricks.
Meet Kano, the DIY computer that you can buy for around $99 and assemble yourself. Powered by Raspberry Pi, the machine snaps together fairly easily and runs a Linux-based Kano OS off an SD card. The OS allows users to create simple games and programs, but more importantly is aimed towards children and hopes to spark their desire for computer programming and technology from an early age. The project’s Kickstarter page has already raised over $600,000 in funding, with the kit currently being available for a pledge of $119 due to high demand.
