KANO Computer Kit Complete

Ooh exciting news! KANO have announced a new Raspberry Pi based complete computer kit for kids to put together.

The KANO Computer Kit Complete combines a Raspberry Pi 3 (a complete computer on a single board), a rechargeable battery, a display, a case, a keyboard, a speaker and all the things you need to make them work together as a complete portable computer.

Now we know that one of the advantages of the Raspberry Pi is that it's inexpensive and you can put together a complete computer cheaply if you have all the extra bits around. But not everyone does and in many families time is more limited than money.

The KANO Computer Kit Complete makes it each to get all the bits you need in a single purchase. And the purchase price is quite affordable at: $249.99/£229.99.

You also get stickers and a storybook which explains how to put the kit together.

The Raspberry Pi is awesome for getting kids started with coding and physical computing (disclosure: I write content for the Raspberry Pi Foundation.)  I'm often asked what you need to get started with a Raspberry Pi and for non-technical parents, it can be a bit daunting. For me, this product removes the initial friction from getting started with the Raspberry Pi.

Here's the launch video:

The Kano Computer Kit Complete is available for pre-order now with a release date of November 1st 2017, in plenty of time for Christmas.

This post is just an initial heads-up. We'll go into more detail when we get our hands on a kit.
