Do you like Legos? Then you would definitely love Kano! Kano is a computer kit designed by two Americans from Lego parts and it is quite easy to assemble. But it outperforms the simple Lego toys by far. Delivered in pieces and having open source software, it allows you to fully understand the design of a computer and customise it according to your own taste. You even do not need to be an engineer or a a geek, as its assembly is very simple and perfectly playful. Even the people without scienctific education can assemble it. Kano wants to give a new dimension to the computer tech market, currently shaped by the big computer giants. According to the makers of Kano, it is for “anyone who wants to create with technology – not just consume it.” Last year, Kano made history at Kickstarter by raising $1.5 million in 30 days. The good news of the day: the first deliveries are scheduled for next month! See the video below for more details:
