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.
So, how easy is it to put the Kano kit together? We tried it out for ourselves and filmed the results.
We’ll have a review up soon with our final thoughts on the Kano DIY PC.
