Following the success of its Raspberry Pi coding kit, Kano is now looking to expand its lineup of products. The DIY-focused brand has taken to Kickstarter to fund three new kits that allow builders to create a camera, display or speakers. Much like the original Kano, kids and adults alike will be able to build these fully-functioning products by following step-by-step instructions.
These aren’t just toys. Each kit is designed to teach coding while promoting the benefits of STEM education. Kano’s web-based learning platform is littered with different projects that can be joined together or function alone. The camera has lessons on focus, time lapses and more. Pixel is a small display that can be programmed to show sports scores or other information. Finally, the speaker kit has Bluetooth connectivity and can be used for creating music or can be paired as walkie talkies. Each kit is currently available on Kickstarter for $99 each or $249 for all three. If all goes to plan, Kano will ship its latest creation in July.
