Latest do it yourself computer kit from Kano

Boot Camp feature for Monday, February 22, 2016

A do it yourself computer kit for kids.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Kano is the name of a build it yourself  kit designed to take the mystery out of computers for kids …and even adults.    The latest version includes the Raspberry Pi 2 tiny PC with a gigabyte of RAM, a quad core processor and there’s even an optional monitor kit.  Co-founder Alex Klein…

“Kano kit version 2 actually lets you build a screen.  An HD screen.   We call it a Screen Kit.  You put the LCD panel in, the driver board, some programmable buttons, your computer slots in the back and then you’ve got a complete DIY PC that you’ve built yourself.  The computer kit and the screen kit.  It’s really a great gift for kind of a curious young person.”

The instructions are simple to follow and will guide you through some basic coding too.   You can find more info at Kano.me.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
