Kano computer review | Oyster & Pearl blog


I am writing this blog post on a computer built by my seven-year-old. Yep, you read that right.

This is Kano, a computer and coding kit described by its inventors as being 'simple as Lego, powered by Pi 2'. I'm not entirely sure what the last bit means but my kids do.

They had the best time setting it up, building it from scratch and then learning simple code. The design of the packaging, the kit, and the interface itself were just perfection - friendly, fun and easy to decipher.

"Mum, what does gender mean? I have to choose boy, girl or wizard. I'm definitely choosing wizard."

Oh, this is the way to get kids going on this stuff. Build your own computer and play Minecraft on it? Genius.

The kit costs £119.99 and postage is free - buy online direct from the Kano site.

Thanks to Kano for sending us a kit to review.
