Kano: A computer anyone can make

Kano Computer Kit By MAP 8

Kano Computer

A computer and coding kit for all ages, all over the world. Simple as Lego, powered by Pi. Make games, learn code, create the future.

What’s Kano?
It’s a computer you make yourself. It’s simple, fun, and for everyone. And we need your help to make it happen. Kano emerged from a year of making computers with hundreds of kids, teachers, engineers, and artists. It’s based on simple steps, physical computing, and play.

What can I do with it?


  • A computer, powered by Raspberry Pi
  • Games like Pong, Snake
  • Music and sounds
  • HD video
  • A speaker
  • Towers of dynamite (…in Minecraft)
  • A wireless server
  • A custom case, with stickers, decals, or any printed design
  • Most Debian Linux packages
  • Pretty much anything else, because Kano is open source

    Kano is a toolkit for anyone to start coding right away.
