NEW PRODUCTS – Kano Computer Kit with Raspberry Pi 3 / Kano Screen Kit


Have you ever wanted to build your own computer but never knew where to begin? Now’s your chance! With the award-winning Kano Computer Kit and Screen Kit you’ll not only build your own powerful computer, you’ll bring it to life!

With simple steps and playful projects you’ll learn how to code art, music, apps, games and more. It’s a fun way to make, play, and express your creativity with technology — built and coded by you. Note — the computer and the screen are sold separately.

Kano’s Computer Kit comes with 10 plug-and-play components including: a Raspberry Pi 3, a wireless keyboard, a DIY speaker, a custom case, power and HDMI cables, memory card, a USB power supply, an illustrated story book and 4 sheets of stickers and case cards. No prior knowledge is needed, and the Kano Book — a step-by-step storybook — is provided to help guide you.

The kit provides an introduction to various programming languages including Python and Javascript. Kids can learn Python through “Kano Blocks” by making Minecraft and Pong, and can dive into the world of Linux by going on a Terminal Quest and by making Snake.

Kano is being used in hundreds of schools across the US, UK, EU, Asia and even parts of Africa. Check out Kano’s educator’s page!

Some children between 6-8 years old may require parental supervision when reading the Kano Book and assembling the Computer and Screen Kit components. Children 8 years and older are proven to be quite self sufficient on their Kano!

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
